Report: Cassel Opts Out Of Vikings Contract

A person familiar with his decision tells The Associated Press that Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel will void the 2014 option on his contract and test the open market.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because he was not authorized to discuss Cassel's decision, which leaves Christian Ponder as the Vikings' only quarterback under contract. Cassel would have made $3.7 million next season if he exercised the option by Friday.

Cassel was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs before the season and picked up by the Vikings. He solidified the starting job the final month of the season after Ponder and Josh Freeman were hurt, throwing for 1,807 yards and 11 touchdowns in nine games and six starts.
