Matt Cassel has until Friday to void his contract

The first order of business for the Vikings is the 2014 option on quarterback Matt Cassel‘s contract. That decision will happen in two stages over the next six weeks or so, but the first deadline comes this week.

Cassel can void his 2014 contract by Friday. If he doesn’t, the Vikings have until the seventh day of the league year in March to decide whether to cut him or pay him a $500,000 roster bonus. He would have a $3.15 million base salary and a $50,000 workout bonus, bringing his total compensation (without incentives) to the same $3.7 million figure he made in 2013.

I personally don’t believe that Cassell will void his contract, but he could if he feels there is a better deal and place for him next season.
