After opting out of a final year of his initial contract with the Vikings to explore free agency, quarterback Matt Cassel will stay right where he is.

Cassel will sign a two-year deal to remain with the Vikings, as first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Jason LaCanfora, online reporter for CBS, reports Cassel's new deal is for $10 million.

Cassel's initial two-year deal with the Vikings was for $7.4 million - and included an out-clause after last season, which Cassel chose to activate.

In 2013, Cassel appeared in nine games for the Vikings, including the final four games of the year.

He started six games overall, coming on in relief of Christian Ponder three times - twice due to injury, once in a straight substitution.  

The Vikings went 4-3 in games when Cassel took a majority of snaps.

Cassel will be 32-years-old at the start of the 2014 season.
