Matt Cassel wins the day on day 10 of Training Camp
Matt Cassel won the day during Monday’s practice.
Cassel started with a strike to Charles Clay for 20 yards and then hit Clay again for a touchdown on a corner route. Percy Harvin also got into the end zone on a throw by Cassel.
“He looked good today,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “Matt looked good.”
But that wasn’t all for Cassel. His pass to Sammy Watkins during the two-minute drill went for a 44-yard touchdown.
Cassel will indeed start the Bills’ first preseason game:
“We’ll start him on Friday and how much work he gets, we’ll see,” Ryan said of Cassel. “We’re going to get all those guys work through these preseason games. He’ll get the first shot just like EJ got in the scrimmage.”
Ryan just wants some consistency and to get Watkins involved:
“I thought our offense looked pretty good,” said Ryan. “I liked the fact that we really got Sammy involved. I figured this correlation. When Sammy gets involved good things happen. So Cassel that’s a good ball by him, that deep ball to Sammy in that two minute for a touchdown. So I was really pleased with that. I think our protection with that first offensive line, I think our protection has been holding up pretty good.”
