Vike’s Sign Jennings & Cassel 16 Mar 13

The Vikings have landed free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings. The former Green Bay Packers star has agreed to a five-year deal. Jennings only played in eight games due to injuries last season. The 29-year has 425 receptions for more than 65-hundred yards and 53 touchdowns since joining the NFL in 2006.

The Vikings are bringing in quarterback Matt Cassel to become Christian Ponder’s backup. The 30-year-old Cassel was the starter in Kansas City for the past four seasons. He played just 18 games over the past two seasons due to injury and ineffectiveness.
