Both Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel 'solid' in practice

Star Tribune - [Full Article]

As for Teddy Bridgewater and the other quarterbacks, it was a mixed bag. Bridgewater got some reps with a group of offensive players that included many of the present starters -- does that technically count as first-team reps? -- and only a few of passes touched the ground, including a throwaway. Matt Cassel, who got most of the snaps with first-teamers, was solid, too. Christian Ponder, meanwhile, did not get many snaps. And on one of those snaps in the two-minute drill at the end of practice, he locked onto his primary receiver at the snap and never took his eyes off of him as he threw a poor interception to cornerback Derek Cox. Remember, though, that this was just one day in early June.

Fantasy Impact: 

We're expecting Bridgewater to win the starting job, but Cassel's experience makes him a tough guy to beat.
