Cassel appeared in nine games for the Vikings last season after beginning the season as a backup. But inconsistent play by Christian Ponder and Josh Freeman led to the opportunity for Cassel to take over the starting quarterback position.

While the starting signal-caller in Minnesota is still not set in stone, Cassel’s 3-3 record, 11 touchdowns and 1,807 passing yards as the team’s starter apparently warranted his re-signing.
