The Vikings have reportedly signed free agent quarterback Matt Cassel, who was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs today.
Cassel, who is expected to be Christian Ponder's backup, is an eight-year veteran with 62 career starts.
FoxSports’ Jay Glazer reports Cassel picked Minnesota over Tampa Bay.
Cassel spent the last four seasons with the Chiefs, who recently replaced him as starter by trading San Francisco’s Alex Smith.
