Vikings Sign K Dan Bailey, Waive Stacy Coley

Vikings sign Dan Bailey, waive Daniel Carlson

A fifth-round pick out of Auburn, Carlson missed all three of his field goal tries, including two in overtime.

He responded with, "Did you see the game?" and then said it was a "pretty easy" decision. "That last one was probably more just confidence after missing twice (earlier)". Bailey has a 91.7 field-goal percentage in a dome and has not missed an extra point at home in 145 career attempts.

After a miserable weekend for several National Football League kickers, the Cleveland Browns waived Zane Gonzalez in the wake of their 21-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

It is quite a blunt response, but the fact of the matter is that Carlson missed all three of his opportunities that could have helped the Vikings grab the win over the Packers.




The former Cowboys kicker agreed to sign with the Vikings Monday after the team waived Daniel Carlson, NFL Media and ESPN reported.

Bailey, 30, has made 88.2 percent of his career field goals. After his first field goal attempt in OT sailed wide right, Minnesota went back to Carlson to kick a 35-yard would-be victor. In the season opener against the 49ers on September 9, Carlson converted his only field goal attempt, from 48 yards, plus three extra points. There was no third season for Forbath in Minnesota.

"It's a chip shot", Zimmer said postgame.

The Vikings are banking that a veteran presence in the kicking game will help them in a season with Super Bowl expectations. If he can come through in the areas Carlson and others before him couldn't, Minnesota might finally solve its kicking woes.
