Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback and Tacoma native Jon Kitna escaped from Detroit, as the Lions traded him to the Cowboys, NFL.com is reporting. Kitna apparently will serve as the backup to Tony Romo with Brad Johnson gone, and rejoins former teammate Roy Williams.
And you’ve probably already heard about the Matt Cassel trade to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Patriots traded Cassell and linebacker Mike Vrabel for the Chiefs’ second round pick, the 34th pick overall. I’m surprised the Patriots didn’t get the first rounder for Cassel, but maybe they didn’t want to pay the salary for a top pick.
