Cassel's franchise tagging is the talk of the town this Friday.

Now that the Patriots have done what had long been expected and placed their franchise tag on Matt Cassel, the pundits are pondering what's next for the team and the QB.

Locally, you'll find numerous analytical pieces in today's editions of The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Providence Journal, and Union Leader.

On the national scene, the Cassel move is also drawing attention, as you might expect. Sports Illustrated's website quotes an unnamed AFC official in their story.

"He looks like he has the tools to be a franchise-caliber quarterback," the official said of Cassel. "He has the accuracy and athleticism to be a special player."

And a website associated with the Vikings speculates on the possibility of Cassel being traded to Minnesota or another NFC North rival.
