Former Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel may be gone but he is still hilarious.
“I taught Tom (Brady) everything. I thought he really started to flourish after I got there,” Cassel joked to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “A lot of people don’t understand how much time we spend together. It’s important to be together and be good teammates. And when you have a good (quarterback) room, it makes everybody better in the room. That’s what it’s all about.”
Cassel has always been a bit of a jokester.
Matt is in Minnesota now and is charged with being the backup to incumbent starter Christian Ponder. Ponder hasn’t exactly lit things up for the Vikings and it isn’t inconceivable to think that Cassel could end up starting for Minnesota, should Ponder struggle.
The main reason for Cassel’s presence is that the Vikings lacked a solid backup option last season. Minnesota made it to the playoffs, largely behind RB Adrian Peterson’s ridiculous season carrying the football. The Vikes qualified for the playoffs but QB injuries left them virtually no chance of winning.
Minnesota is a good fit for Cassel. The team is build to run the football and play defense. Cassel has proven that in the right situation, he can be efficient. He’s an ideal backup for a team like the Vikings.
What do you think, Addicts? Will Cassel end up starting in Minnesota?
