Cowboys Acquire Matt Cassel In Trade With Bills
In the trade, the Bills will receive a 2017 draft choice from the Cowboys.
In Romo's absence, Brandon Weeden will be the starter, with Cassel installed as a backup.
Cassel is due $2 million in base salary this season and can earn up to an additional $2.15 million in playing-time and playoff incentives.
Romo has been placed on injury reserve, and will not be eligible to start until Nov. 22.
