Matt Cassel has decided to void his 2014 contract and become a Free Agent. Should the Raiders consider Cassel?

Here is the actual article on that matter.. Matt Cassel will void the 2014 option on his contract and become a free agent, a person familiar with his decision told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation.

Though the Vikings could've also cut him before paying a roster bonus next month, Cassel would've made $3.7 million this year had he not opted out, the same amount he made in the 2013 season. Let go by the Kansas City Chiefs last year, Cassel signed with the Vikings as the backup to Christian Ponder but finished the season as the starter.

Cassel was on the field at the end of all five of Minnesota's victories this year, three as the starter and two in relief of an injured Ponder. He appeared in nine games, and the Vikings went 3-3 in his six starts. With 11 touchdowns, nine interceptions, a 60.2 completion percentage, and an average of 239.8 yards passing per start, Cassel was by far the best quarterback on the roster. Ponder struggled, got hurt and sputtered again when given the job back. Josh Freeman played one infamously rough game.

Cassel is another option available in free agency that may be help a team looking for a veteran presence while developing a young QB.. Well, should the Raiders consider Cassel, other than Vick he may be the best option as a Vet stop gap measure.
