Matt Cassel Traded to Chiefs

FOOCH'S NOTE 11:15AM: Obviously this isn't a 49er pickup, but it will end any discussion of Cassel going to the 49ers.  We've got an ESPN link and NFL.com link.  Vrabel and Cassel for a high 2nd round pick?  I think the Chiefs made off quite well, particularly given the state of their QB situation, which is much worse than the 49ers.

NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that Matt Cassel has been traded to the Chiefs.

The Boston Globe's Mike Reiss has confirmed the news, which is part of the trade sending Mike Vrabel to Kansas City. There were rumors Cassel could be involved in a three-team swap, but it appears Kansas City will be his final destination. Compensation has not been announced, but it's safe to say the Tyler Thigpen era is over before it started.

Well this certainly changes the first round of the draft.  With Cassel, I doubt they'd draft a QB. I don't know that much about the Chiefs. What are their other needs?
