At the first week of the 2008 season after Tom Brady, the reigning NFL MVP suffered a season-ending knee injury, Cassel became the starting quarterback of the Patriots. The Patriots eventually utilized their franchise tag on Cassel to extend him a one-year contract that is more than $14 million. In the history of the NFL, it became the largest one-year contract for an offensive player. During the offseason, the Patriots traded Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs. In July 2009, they signed him to a six-year contract worth $62.7 million. By the year 2010, Cassel was able to lead the Chiefs to their first divisional championship in AFC West in seven years. Because of this, he earned a Pro Bowl selection.

From 2011 to 2012, he was only able to play for partial seasons as a starting quarterback because his injuries limited his playing time. The Chiefs eventually cut him in the 2013 off-season and he signed with the Vikings. He was able to earn his way as a Vikings started but his 2014 season was cut short because of additional injuries.

In the 2015 season, he got traded by the Vikings to the Buffalo Bills. After just three games, he got traded to the Dallas Cowboys. Here, he served as a back-up role and started several games as a replacement for the injured Tony Romo. In the 2016 season, he got released by the Cowboys and played as a back-up for the Tennessee Titans. He then played the same role for the Detroit Lions in 2018.

Cassel eventually became NBC Sports Boston's television football analyst.
