Cassel intends to void the 2014 option on his contract, a person familiar with the situation to said, confirming multiple reports.

He was scheduled to make $3.7 million in 2014 with the Vikings, but both sides had an option on the deal. Cassel had to make his decision by Friday while the Vikings had until the seventh day of the league year to cut Cassel or pay him a $500,000 roster bonus.
