Vikings sign Dan Bailey as kicker

Vikings sign Dan Bailey, waive Daniel Carlson

The Vikings went ahead on Monday and made a decision to part ways with Daniel Carlson after the rookie kicker missed all three of his field goal attempts during Sunday's matchup with the Green Bay Packers, including two in overtime.

Carlson missed two field goals from 42 yards out in the Vikings' third preseason game against Seattle. "In the end, my hunch is he'll land somewhere".

The Vikings can't let any more wins this season rest on the foot and mind of an inexperienced kicker who can't be relied on. Dan Bailey, the second-most accurate field goal kicker in National Football League history, is a free agent after being released by the Dallas Cowboys two weeks ago.

Bailey, 30, has made 88.2 percent of his career field goals.

Ozil's retirement from worldwide football came after he made claims of racism from the German football association. Rafael Benitez believes Unai Emery was the ideal candidate to succeed Arsene Wenger .

The Vikings are banking that a veteran presence in the kicking game will help them in a season with Super Bowl expectations. Bailey connected on 15-of-20 field-goal tries and missed the first two extra points of his career, all of which came after he was injured. Bailey turned down four offers since the start of the season before deciding on Minnesota.

Bailey spent seven seasons with the Cowboys (2011-17) and was released by Dallas on September 1, 2018. "That's frustrating. That shorter one I should never miss like that". In the season opener against the 49ers on September 9, Carlson converted his only field goal attempt, from 48 yards, plus three extra points. "We'll get some more sixth-rounders next year".

A source said the Vikings also plan to sign wide receiver Aldrick Robinson. "He's a fast guy", Zimmer said.
