Vikings Boot Carlson After Lambeau Choke; Sign Dan Bailey



Well that didn’t take long. Out with the new and in with the old… or something like that. After his nightmarish Lambeau Field performance on Sunday, Daniel Carlson was waived today and Dan Bailey has been signed in his place:

Not even a full day after his nightmarish performance at Lambeau Field that resulted in a 29-29 tie, the Vikings have moved on at the kicker position. Carlson’s Vikings career saw him go 1-4 on field goals through 2 games, and for a team with Super Bowl aspirations that is not acceptable.

Oh wait there’s more. We have a new kicker already!

Bailey, who most recently kicked for the Dallas Cowboys, was waiting for the best opportunity in picking his newest team. Apparently the Vikings fit that bill. This move makes sense. The Vikings are in win-now mode and can’t afford to lose close games because of bad kicking. Bailey is one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, despite some struggles last year.

Big leg, veteran kicker. Let’s go. One thing to keep in mind is that this has to go in the “big miss column” for Rick Spielman, who traded up to grab Carlson in the draft. And now he’s gone.

Hopefully we never have to see one of these again:

Well Eric… one down…
