Day three of free agency kicked off with the Vikings coming to terms with Matt Cassel, and ended with them trying to woo Greg Jennings.
Vikings ink Cassel
Cassel comes to Minnesota as the veteran presence as backup quarterback behind Christian Ponder, which the Vikings sorely lacked last season.
Cassel spent the past four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. In eight starts last year, Cassel passed for 1,796 yards, six touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Vikings wooing Greg Jennings
Greg Jennings began his visit with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday with dinner at Manny’s. Those in attendance at dinner included Rick Spielman, Leslie Frazier and Jared Allen.
According to 1500ESPN, Jennings will then visit Winter Park tomorrow.
Jennings battled injuries last season with the Packers and only played in eight games. He had 36 receptions for 366 yards and four touchdowns.
