According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com/Network Freeman has signed a one year deal with our Minnesota Vikings for $3 million – a similar figure to Cassel’s salary. It is slightly higher.
Considering how quickly he will have to pick up the playbook to make an impact over the course of the contract, it seems curious. Surely, Ponder’s days as a starter are numbered. Clearly, Cassel did not do quite enough. I still think #16 starts against the Panthers next week. More to come.
