I think they should try to re-sign Cassel for 2-3 years, for a bit more money. I don't know who'd pay more for him. They'll need a vet backup for 2015 even if they hit on a franchise QB in the draft this year.

Email this a.m. from someone directly in the know on the Matt Cassel Fri. deadline: "He will void." I still think he's back though.


I'm not extremely surprised by this, I thought with a new coach it might keep him around better, if it had been Frazier and company would have doubted he'd come back. I hope he just wants more guaranteed money for this upcoming season and re-signs.

Smart decision on his behalf. Why take a one year deal making four million when you might be able to land a multi year deal for the same or more. I wonder if mn is even interested.

From both the team and Cassel perspective, a stay in Minnesota makes sense. I can't see anyone else being able to offer Cassel more in terms of an opportunity to play as well as a paycheck. With such uncertainty at the QB position, the team also needs him.

sounds like Cassel's agent is doing his job.

The browns, jags, raiders and texans have just as much uncertainty as Minnesota. I could see any one of those teams going after Cassel.

If they choose to resign him for additional years, I wouldn't pay him one cent more than what we were going to pay him this year. If some other team wants to pay him more, let them.

Is there really a big difference between going 8-8 with Cassel and going 5-11 with a rookie or Ponder?

Cassel or any veteran adds value for not having to force a rookie into the lineup. I'd still consider a trade for Ryan Mallett, he is a veteran and is young. He is cheap as well, unlike Cassel.

Sure, but you can keep Ponder and not have to force the rookie into the lineup. It won't be great, but the results won't be drastically worse than they are with Cassel.

Also, I'd take Mallett in a heartbeat if we could get him for a 2nd round pick or less.

Houston makes a lot of sense and is a heck of a better team than MN right now in terms of talent. If Houston truly wants anyone other than Bridgewater, Cassel would be a good stop gap for them, especially with his background with O'Brien.

I hope we resign Cassel and draft Carr (assuming no Teddy).

Uh, maybe I'm in the minority but I know I would rather make a giant sum of money for one year's work than the same money for more than one year's work. Laughing

I could live with letting Cassel go and signing a really cheap stop gap to start like josh freeman or Charlie Whitehurst.sure they arehorrible but why spend big money on your stop gap qb. Let freeman or whitehurst start for six games and throw Carr into the fire.
