Patriots’ trade with Chiefs is a money-saver

For the past 24 hours, it has been pointed out that trading QB Matt Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs freed up $14.65 million against the New England Patriots’ salary cap.

But LB Mike Vrabel also was included in the deal, and trading him freed up another $3.35 million against the cap.

So with one trade, the Patriots saved a whopping $18 million that they can now use on other players. And it doesn’t look like they will waste a lot of time. Former Washington Redskins CB Shawn Springs is scheduled to visit the Patriots today.
