Vikings sign veteran kicker Dan Bailey

May JohnsonSep 19, 2018

Minnesota is waiving rookie Daniel Carlson, whose performance on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers led the Vikings to pursue Bailey.

Head coach Mike Zimmer had previously stated his worries about Carlson after he missed two field goals during the team's third preseason game. "In the end, my hunch is he'll land somewhere".

They didn't immediately announce a replacement for Carlson. He scored 130 points during the regular season and hit three field goals against the Saints to send the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game, including a 49- and 53-yarder in the fourth quarter.

The Minnesota Vikings have signed kicker Dan Bailey, owner of the second-best field goal percentage in National Football League history and replacement for rookie Daniel Carlson. However, he had struggled with injuries late last season as it impacted his play on the field missing five out of 12 field goal attempts in the last month that pushed him below 84 percent in his career.

On the camera front, the XR features a single 12-megapixel wide-angle camera on the rear, with the same specifications as the XS. The biggest difference between the XR and the XS is the display - instead of an OLED panel, the XR is relying on an LCD panel.

Missing one field goal is bad.

Gonzalez, a seventh-round pick in 2017, missed two field goals and two extra point attempts to cost the Browns their first victory since December 2016.

To make room for Bailey on the active roster, the Vikings released wide receiver Stacy Coley. If he can come through in the areas Carlson and others before him couldn't, Minnesota might finally solve its kicking woes.

"It's a chip shot", Zimmer said postgame. "And then he's a fast guy".
