Vikings cut rookie Carlson after 3 missed FGs, target Bailey

Vikings sign Dan Bailey, waive Daniel Carlson

Vikings sign Dan Bailey, waive Daniel Carlson

"That last one was probably more just confidence after missing twice early".

After releasing rookie Daniel Carlson on Monday, the Minnesota Vikings signed their new kicker on Tuesday. That sealed his fate, and when asked about Carlson's release, Zimmer was pretty blunt in his assessment.

Bailey has made 186 of 211 career field goals, good for an accuracy rate of 88.2 percent.

Bailey, 30, was released by the Cowboys on September 1 in a surprise move, even though he was coming off his worst National Football League season. "But things happen, I guess". But on Sunday, in his second regular-season game, he went 0-of-3 on field goals.

The Vikings drafted Carlson in the fifth round of this year's draft.

Apple's new 6.5-inch handset could be called the 'iPhone XS Max'
What features come with the iPhone XS camera? The same report compared Apple's approach to the iPhone 5C with its bright colors. The names are still a mystery, but for ease of understanding, we will tentatively call them the iPhone XS , XS Plus and X Lite.

Carlson was awarded the job when the Vikings let Kai Forbath go on August 20, and Carlson pulled two field-goal tries wide left in an exhibition game four days later. Bailey turned down four offers since the start of the season before deciding on Minnesota. He has also made 276-of-278 extra point attempts, and collected 296 touchbacks on 549 kickoffs.

"Nah, that's water off a duck's back", Zimmer said.

The Vikings signed wide receiver Aldrick Robinson, a seventh-year veteran who was most recently with San Francisco and played with quarterback Kirk Cousins in Washington in 2012 and 2013.

Carlson lamented postgame that nerves likely played a role in missing his final kick. We shall see what that means for Treadwell, a player they'd most likely bench instead of cutting (unless they really need the roster spot).
