Buffalo traded Cassel and their 2017 7th round pick for Dallas' 2017 5th round pick.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Cowboys placed Tony Romo on the IR-Designated to Return. On Sunday, the quarterback broke his collarbone against the Philadelphia Eagles. It left Dallas with Brandon Weeden as the only quarterback on the team's 53-man roster. With Romo being unable to return until Week 11, the team certainly needed to add depth and competition to their roster. Cassel could certainly compete for the starting job once he learns the playbook.

Based upon the first two weeks of the season, the NFC East is truly up for grabs, so trading for Cassel makes plenty of sense for Dallas.

The move leaves Buffalo with Tyrod Taylor and E.J. Manuel as the only quarterbacks on Buffalo's 53-man roster.

During the preseason, Cassel completed 13-of-15 passes (86.7%) for 83 yards.
