2013 Outlook: Over the Hill (decreased production)

Last updated on Jun-21-2013 by Rob Warner

The Vikings learned the hard way that improving their backup QB spot was necessary after Joe Webb fell flat on his face during the playoff loss to Green Bay. The 31 year old Cassel signed a 2-year deal to serve as Christian Ponder's backup and could see starts in the 2nd half of the season if Ponder fails to progress. The USC alum had a solid 2008 season (subbing for an injured Tom Brady), as he threw for 3,693 yards with 21 TDs , 11 INTs and led the Pats to an 11-5 record. In 2010, he finished with 27 TDs and just 7 INTs, but failed to average more than 210 YPG in any of his four seasons with the Chiefs. Over the past two seasons, Cassel battled injuries, suting up for just 18 games. In 47 starts for the Chiefs, he went 19-28 while turning the ball over an alarming 57 times.
