ESPN is reporting that Matt Cassel has been named the Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback over rookie Teddy Bridgewater.
quote:

Zimmer told Vikings players in a team meeting Monday morning that Cassel would be the starter over rookie Teddy Bridgewater, who had played well in the preseason and directed a game-winning touchdown drive Aug. 16 against the Cardinals.

But Cassel has received the majority of the first-team work, playing nearly three full quarters in the Vikings' third preseason game in Kansas City on Saturday night. His installation as the starting quarterback seemed inevitable for several weeks; Zimmer made it official Monday.
Cassel has completed 26 of 39 passes for 367 yards, two touchdowns and an interception this preseason.
