Cassel and Vrable for 2nd round pick? Are you kidding me?!!!

Here's one possible answer from Peter King:
"my take is that Bill Belichick either didn't get a better offer, or he did one of his best friends, Pioli, a favor with a player Belichick wanted to put in a good situation; Belichick is very fond of Cassel. It would not be surprising to see Belichick make the deal with Pioli because both were trained under Bill Parcells, and Parcells always made sure he watched out for his lieutenants and helped them whenever it didn't hurt him."

It was a pay off so Pioli would not rat me out for cheating still.
