Matt Cassel likely to opt out and hit free agency

KSTP - [Full Article]

Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Matt Cassel has decided to void his contract for the 2014 season, a source with direct knowledge said in an email to KSTP.

Cassel has until Friday to void his contract, in which case he will become a free agent. There's still a possibility he can re-sign with the Vikings with different terms on the contract.

Fantasy Impact: 

At this point, Cassel is the Vikings' best bet at QB heading into the 2014 season. We'll see if he returns on a two-year deal or perhaps a one-year deal at a higher salary. Greg Jennings averaged 5.9-70-.57 (fantasy WR2 numbers) in seven games where Cassel played heavy snaps.
