Seattle — Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams officials will hold a meeting Monday to try to finalize a deal to acquire Rams quarterback Matt Cassel from the Rams, sources told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
Cassel, 31, is expected to be a restricted free agent next month after being released by the Rams following last season.
A deal between the two parties would likely involve the two sides working out a two-year deal worth at least $50 million.
Cassell has been linked to several NFL teams, including the Jets, Titans and Saints.
Rapoports report the meeting would likely take place Monday.
Rapaport reported last month that the Rams and Raiders were among the teams expected to host a meeting with Cassel.
The Seahawks and Rams are expected to meet with Casse in Santa Clara, California, on Sunday.
Rapenews reported that the meeting is expected in a meeting room with a TV screen, with the two teams reportedly set to talk.
A few weeks ago, it was reported the Rams were interested in acquiring Cassel, but they’ve been hesitant to move forward with a deal because of concerns about their quarterback situation.
They’ve also been unable to work out a deal with the Rams to keep Cassel on their roster.
Los Angeles was able to land Cassel because of a trade with the Seahawks.
The two teams have been locked in trade talks for several months, but it has not resulted in a deal.
Rapnews reported that there is no chance of a deal happening between the teams.
