Vikings sign Dan Bailey as kicker

Minnesota Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson reacts after missing a field goal in the final seconds of overtime an NFL football game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday Sept. 16 2018 in Green Bay Wis. The game ended in a 29-29 tie

Minnesota is waiving rookie Daniel Carlson, whose performance on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers led the Vikings to pursue Bailey. Bailey kicked for Dallas from 2011-17 before he was released September 1 in a surprise move.

Bailey missed four games last season with a groin injury, but finished 15-of-20 on field goals and 26-of-28 on extra points.

As kickers kept going wide right, wide left and even off the uprights, one name kept coming up on social media: Dan Bailey, the second-most accurate kicker in league history.

Between all the games Sunday, there were nine games that had a missed field goal or failed PAT.

Carlson's last miss to win the game was a relatively short 35-yard try.

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. Most recently, Blair Walsh missed a potential game-winning 27-yarder against the Seattle Seahawks in the 2016 Wild Card game. [General manager Rick Spielman] and I have barely talked yet. But all the leg strength in the world won't make up for any setbacks on the mental side of this pressure-packed job.

"I don't know. It's too early. But things happen, I guess".

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

A source said the Vikings also plan to sign wide receiver Aldrick Robinson. "We'll get some more sixth-rounders next year, I'm not anxious about that". 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). "And then he's a fast guy".
