Matt Cassel and Leslie Frazier both used the same word to describe the fit of the new backup quarterback. Cassel says he is clear on his role this year.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB

The Vikings signed Jennings to a five-year, $47.5 million deal says Kareem Copeland of...
Antoine Winfield was blindsided when the Vikings released him six days ago, according to reports.
It was an awkward departure. The 14-year veteran, coming off a season in which he graded out as the NFL's top corner, was working out at Winter Park when general manager Rick Spielman summoned him upstairs to cut him.

Many Green Bay Packers fans already were bitter about Greg Jennings signing with the Minnesota Vikings. This won't alleviate those feelings.
Jennings said Brett Favre, the former Packers and Vikings quarterback, helped him make the decision.
