Minnesota Vikings announced that they will start Matt Cassel over Josh Freeman as quarterback against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Josh Freeman, who was recently waived by Tampa, signed a one-year deal worth $3 million with the Vikings last week.
Coach Leslie Frazier said Friday that it was expected that Cassel would remain in the lineup after he helped the Vikings win their first game of the season in London against Pittsburgh.
The Vikings signed ex-Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman to possibly compete for the starting job if needed. The former first round draft pick, Freeman struggled with Tampa before being released. He completed a league-worst, 45.3 percent of his passes, and threw only two touchdowns and two interceptions while with the Buccaneers earlier in the season.
