Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Matt Cassel has decided to void his contract for the 2014 season, a source with direct knowledge said in an email to KSTP.

Cassel has until Friday to void his contract, in which case he will become a free agent. There's still a possibility he can re-sign with the Vikings with different terms on the contract.

Cassel signed a two-year deal with the Vikings before the 2013 season to serve as Christian Ponder's back-up. He was set to make $3.7 million next year.
