Another Camp, Another QB Competition for Vikings

Matt Cassel has started the Minnesota Vikings training camp as the starting quarterback.
    
As coach Mike Zimmer said again Friday, prior to the first full practice, that does not mean Cassel will automatically keep the same status for the season opener.
    
The Vikings have more than six weeks to evaluate this critical position, and rookie Teddy Bridgewater in particular will be under scrutiny. After drafting him in the first round, the Vikings have said often they're unafraid to start a first-year player.
    
The carousel spun frequently last season, from Christian Ponder at the beginning to Cassel at the end. After a decade of quarterback chaos, the Vikings are hoping to finally create some stability there.
