Matt Cassel has had a well-traveled NFL career, but it appears his most recent destination could be his favorite.
While the 33-year-old veteran will be playing for his fifth team, he said the Cowboys hold a special place in his heart.
"It's great to be wanted. It's been a childhood dream of mine to be a Cowboy, honestly. My father grew up in West Texas, in Lubbock, and I've got family here, and I grew up a Dallas Cowboy fan all my life. So to actually have it come true finally and actually be here is a dream come true, and I'm really excited about it," Cassel said.
Don't be surprised if the newly acquired quarterback eventually takes the reigns as the Cowboys' starter while Romo is on injured reserve/designated to return. The veteran has had an up-and-down career since he went 10-5 in 2008 as the Patriots' starter when Tom Brady went down with a torn ACL. Will see if the fifth time is the charm for the journeyman QB.
