Cassel back in Minnesota QB will re-sign with Vikings By: Mike Krueger | Mar 7 2014, 8:00 pm
One month after opting out of his previous contract, Matt Cassel is coming back for two years and $10 million. The signing was confirmed by two NFL sources. The contract Cassel opted out of was a two-year deal he signed in 2013 that was worth $3.7 million per season. His new contract is worth $10 million over two years, according to cbssports.com.

FFToday's Take:The deal can't be completed until free agency begins on Tuesday but Cassel will be wearing purple in 2014. The Vikes are also likely to be looking for QB help in the upcoming draft but not necessarily in the first round. Christian Ponder is likely headed for a backup role.
