Minneapolis, MN, United States (4E Sports) – Quarterback Matt Cassel re-signed with the Minnesota Vikings on a two-year deal worth $10 million Friday.
The 31-year-old signal-caller signed a two-year deal with the Vikings in March 2013 but it included a clause that let him void his 2014 deal within five days of the Super Bowl.
Cassel opted out of his contract on Feb. 7.
On Thursday, first-year Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer made it clear that the team wanted Cassel back in 2014.
He was a backup heading into the 2013 regular season but went on to start six games for the Vikings as Christian Ponder and Josh Freeman struggled to lead the offense.
Cassel wound up leading the Vikings in passing yards with 1,807 and touchdowns with 11.
