MINNEAPOLIS -- Matt Cassel was one day away from hitting the free agent market and fielding offers from other suitors. [url=http Antworten

MINNEAPOLIS -- Matt Cassel was one day away from hitting the free agent market and fielding offers from other suitors. Air Jordan 11 Australia Online . Then the Minnesota Vikings swooped in at the last minute. The Vikings agreed to terms with Cassel on Friday on a deal that will keep him in Minnesota, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement had not been made. Terms of the deal, which was first reported by NFL Network, were not immediately available. The move helps solidify the Vikings shaky quarterback situation. The team used a musical chairs approach to the position last season, rotating Christian Ponder and Cassel, and even starting Josh Freeman for one game during a miserable 5-10-1 season. Cassel was by far the most effective of the three, going 3-3 in his six starts and being on the field at the end of all five of the teams victories. He completed 60.2 per cent of his passes for 1,807 yards with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions after signing as a free agent from the Kansas City Chiefs. But he opted out of the final year of his two-year deal in February, and there was concern Cassel would choose to move to another team after he was forced to split time with the ineffective Ponder. New head coach Mike Zimmer said Thursday he "would love to have Matt Cassel back if Matt Cassel wants to be back." But the coach was also bracing for the likelihood Cassel would at least test free agency before giving the Vikings an answer. "Hes got a bunch of pretty girls looking at him right now," Zimmer said then. "And he wants to explore and see whats best for him. I dont blame any of these guys. In free agency, I think thats why they have the rules is that they get a chance to go see what their markets worth. Then if they find a better situation than what they think is here, then I think thats everywhere." It appears Cassel knew where he wanted to be all along. Cassels familiarity with the teams offensive players -- Adrian Peterson, Greg Jennings, Cordarrelle Patterson and Kyle Rudolph among them -- and the way the team responded to Cassels leadership on the field were among the big reasons the Vikings wanted him back. The agreement would appear to make Cassel the front-runner to be the starter when the 2014 season opens with new offensive co-ordinator Norv Turner calling the plays. Ponder is still on the roster, but his performance over his first three seasons has inspired little confidence among his teammates. The Vikings have the eighth overall pick in the upcoming draft, and there remains a strong possibility they will select someone to be the teams quarterback of the future. But keeping Cassel in the fold will reduce the pressure on the team to start a rookie. "It all depends, but what I want to do is play the best guy," Zimmer said. "I dont care if hes a rookie, if hes a veteran, if hes a returner. It doesnt matter to me who the quarterback is if he can win games, and thats really what its about, winning football games and figuring out how to do that." Air Jordan 11 Retro Australia . When the Dallas Mavericks needed to stop a Golden State rally in the fourth quarter, they looked for defensive help from the rookie point guard playing in just his sixth game. Air Jordan 11 Australia . No, really, his head. Late in the game, the St. Louis goalie craned his neck into the air to block a shot, taking a puck square in the mask. . Four years after winning gold on home ice in Vancouver, the Canadians will get a chance to make it two in a row Sunday against Sweden after beating the United States 1-0 in the Olympic semifinals Friday at Bolshoy Ice Dome.( - On the bright side, either the Minnesota Wild or Buffalo Sabres will end their losing streak on Thursday night. The two teams square off in western New York having lost a combined 14 consecutive games -- the Wild six in a row and the Sabres having dropped eight straight. Minnesota is on its longest slide of the season and reached another low point on Tuesday when it was routed 7-2 by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Jonas Brodin and Justin Fontaine had the goals as the Wild fell to 0-5-1 on its skid. Niklas Backstrom allowed six goals on 35 shots and John Curry gave up a goal on two shots in relief. For whatever reason, we just fall apart, Wild head coach Mike Yeo said. The things just compound quickly. Minnesota is aiming to avoid its longest losing streak since going 0-5-2 from Feb. 4-18, 2012 and shook up its roster on Wednesday by acquiring goaltender Devan Dubnyk from the Arizona Coyotes for a 2015 third-round pick. The Wild are need of help in net with Darcy Kuemper currently sidelined with a lower-body injury that has held him out of the past four games, while Backstrom has posted a 3.04 goals against average and .887 save percentage on the season. Dubnyk appeared in 19 games for Arizona this season, posting a record of 9-5-2 with a 2.72 GAA and a .916 save percentage. It is unknown if he will be able to debut tonight or if Backstrom will start. Regardless of who is in net, the Wild wont have key defenseman Ryan Suter as he begins a two-game suspension tonight for delivering an elbow to the head of Pittsburghs Steve Downie on Tuesday. Suter leaves a big void as he leads the NHL with an average ice time of 29 minutes and 34 seconds per game. THe Wild recalled defenseman Matt Dumba from the American Hockey League on Wednesday, while placing Justin Faulk and Marco Scandella on injured reseerve. Cheap Jordan 11 Wholesale. Faulk suffered an upper-body injury versus the Pens, while Scandella has missed the past four games with an upper-body issue. The Sabres continue to drop down the NHL standings thanks to their longest slide of the season. Only the Edmonton Oilers (29) have fewer points than Buffalos 31. The Sabres finished last in the NHL in 2013-14 with 52 points. Buffalo lost for the 12th time in 13 games on Tuesday with a 3-1 setback to the Detroit Red Wings. Mike Weber had a goal and Michal Neuvirth yielded all three goals on 30 shots. You have to play hard every night and play the right way, said Weber. Weve shown at times during the season that we can skate and play with any team out there. Buffalo has not scored more than two goals in any of the eight games on its losing streak and has dropped each game in regulation. It has not lost nine straight since an 0-5-5 slump from Dec. 26, 2007-Jan. 16, 2008. The Sabres are 2-for-21 on the power play during their losing streak, so coach Ted Nolan opted to move 6-foot-8 defenseman Tyler Myers up front on the man advantage during practice on Wednesday. Myers could assume the screen-setting role tonight on the power play, while forward Chris Stewart is slated to return from a two-game absence caused by the flu. The Sabres have lost three in a row versus the Wild, including a 6-3 loss in Minnesota on Nov. 13. Jhonas Enroth gave up five goals on 38 shots in defeat and is expected to start tonight. He is 1-2-0 versus the Wild with a 3.02 GAA and .893 save percentage. Nino Niederreiter had a hat trick in the victory for the Wild, while Kuemper was yanked 6:24 into the contest after allowing goals on the only two shots he faced. Backstrom picked up the win in relief by making 25 stops the rest of the way. Minnesota is 5-2-0 all-time in Buffalo.
