According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Matt Cassel has the best chance to be back with the Vikings in 2014. Josh Freeman likely won’t be back and Christian Ponder will be placed on the trade block.

BEST OF MAXIM

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer The Minnesota Vikings play in a division that has been up for grabs all season long. They've had four losses - and a tie - by four points or less.
So many factors led to the Vikings (4-9-1) being on the outside looking in as the season winds down. But one appears to stick out more than any other.
Matt Cassel has grabbed...
Don’t ask Adrian Peterson for a gift this holiday season. The post Watch: Adrian Peterson gives teammates thoughtful gifts appeared first on Sports Glory.
Unbelievable. That is the exact word to describe the Vikings offense in today’s 48-30 win over the Eagles.
The most surprising part was that the Vikings managed to score their season high in points without their best player Adrian Peterson.
Matt Cassel definitely deserved the game ball. He was able to manage an effective game even though the defense planned to stop the passing...
MINNEAPOLIS -- Matt Cassel stopped his backpedal, looked ahead and saw the Philadelphia Eagles' defense part down the middle the same the Minnesota Vikings' defense did in practice during the week on a designed run.
Cassel took off and was untouched on a 6-yard touchdown run to give Minnesota a surprising 24-lead in the third quarter, against Philadelphia, which had won...
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Matt Cassel will be the Vikings’ starting quarterback for their final two regular season games.
Matt Cassel will indeed start the Vikings' last 2 games, barring injury, per sources. No reason to further evaluate Josh Freeman.

Cassel should have been...
During the entire 2013 season, the Minnesota Vikings have played musical chairs at quarterback. While that sounds like a blast, it hasn't resulted in winning cakes or cheap toys (or football games for that matter).Instead, it's cost the Vikings several games and lead them to the 4-9-1 record that will likely relieve Leslie Frazier of his duties as head coach. But what exactly...
The Minnesota Vikings were extremely short-handed Sundaynear the end of an increasingly lost season, playing without their top tworunning backs, top two tight ends and top three cornerbacks.On the others side were the streaking Philadelphia Eagles,winners of five straight games and owning the NFC's best road record at 5-1.So of course, Minnesota rallied together and beatPhiladelphia...
Matt Cassel will finish out the season as the starting quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings.
Cassel has been hot of late winning two of his last three starts and the Vikings are rewarding him by announcing him as the starter for the rest of the season.
The move is hardly a surprise as head coach Leslie Frazier is fighting for his job, Christian Ponder is expected to be let...
The Eagles defense came crashing down to Earth in a big way Sunday at the most inopportune time. Image courtesy: Minnesota Vikings.
One had to believe that the Philadelphia Eagles defense that had held opponents to fewer than 21 points in each of their last eight games would eventually come back down to Earth.
The fact that Matt Cassel and the Adrian Peterson-less Minnesota Vikings...
The Vikings have operated more efficiently this season with Matt Cassel at quarterback, making his future brighter. The numbers show the difference he has made in the passing game.
I’m of two clashing minds when it comes to deploying the Eagles’ defense against Matt Cassel and the Vikings this Sunday.
The matchup is potentially a juicy one, as Cassel — despite his occasional outbursts of reasonably good play — has been a turnover machine for most of the past three seasons, and the Vikings will be without Adrian Peterson and possibly Toby Gerhart, who...
Matt Cassel passed for 382 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to lead the injury-depleted Vikings to a 48-30 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday, snapping the Eagles' five-game winning streak.
With Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out, Matt Asiata rushed for the first three touchdowns of his career and Greg Jennings caught a career-high 11 passes for 163 yards...
Greg Jennings and Matt Cassel have a strong on-field relationship, no doubt. Jennings wonders how the season might have changed with more of Cassel; Leslie Frazier prefers to look ahead.
Blow the Place Up
Seriously, call it a day. Forfeit the rest of the season (or at least the final game of the season at home against the Lions), and call it the end of the era, because I don't know if the Vikings will ever be able to that win in the Metrodome. In a season that was already lost, the Vikings decided to sit Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart, Chris Cook, and Xavier...
I hope, for the sake of your sanity and your fantasy squad, that you listened to Vegas, dismissed the Eagles’ defense, and rolled with the Jaguars’ defense last week.
Philadelphia’s recent strong defensive play evaporated in a smoke that suffocated a million fantasy seasons, as the Eagles’ vulnerable secondary was lit aflame by none other than Matt Cassel. The Eagles didn’t...
