Vikings pass over Bridgewater for Cassel

08/25/2014 12:27 PM

As first reported by Jay Glazer of FoxSports.com , Matt Cassel has been named as starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings — not rookie and former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

During the pre-season, Bridgewater completed 26 of 40 passes for 266 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. He appears to be second string as the Vikings’ other quarterback, Christian Ponder, did not see any action.
