by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner sounded impressed with rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater after Monday's workout, saying Bridgewater "should have gone in the first 10 picks." Minnesota selected Bridgewater with the 32nd and final pick of the first round.

Jaws: Matt Cassel is NFL's worst starting quarterback
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, a former quarterback, ranked the Vikings' Matt Cassel the league's worst starting quarterback. Jaworski said Cassel is a poor fit for Norv Turner's scheme because he's not very good at executing play-action passes.

"Turner's offense starts with the run game. With Adrian Peterson in the backfield, Cassel's 66 quarterback rating last year on play-action passes just wasn't good enough," Jaworski said.

Cassel will try to hold off rookie Teddy Bridgewater during training camp.

Vikes won't name starting QB until well into training camp
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

While most expect Matt Cassel to open the season as the Vikings' quarterback, coach Mike Zimmer told USA Today he won't name a starter until well into training camp.

"I want to give everybody an opportunity and make sure that it's a legitimate opportunity for all of them," Zimmer said after the team opened its mandatory minicamp Tuesday. "Then we'll start narrowing down the reps as we get going. But it won't be for a while."

Cassel will have to fend off rookie Teddy Bridgewater and former first-rounder Christian Ponder.
