Matt Cassel Will Void His Contract

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel will void his deal before the Friday deadline. He is looking to make more dough next season.

He had a decent season with the Vikings and the team could look to bring him back for another season. He would make a solid backupon some team and he can provide a veteran presence for one of the teams that is picking up a rookie quarterback.

Cassel started 6 games for the Vikings last season and finished with a 3-3 record in those games. He threw for 11 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. It was a much better performance from his days with the Kansas City Chiefs.

There should be interest around the league for the veteran’s services. Leslie Frazier might want to bring him back over to Tampa Bay on his offense. The Vikings likely will want him back on the roster. The Browns could use a quarterback or five. The Raiders could use a veteran. The Texans will need one after getting rid of Matt Schaub. There is a number of places that Cassel can go to. Might as well test the market out.
