As predicted, vedvik traded

Recommended Posts

Nobody predicted this..........

 

 

The Vikings' kicking situation is more cloudy than ever. Kaare Vedvik, who did all the place-kicking in Minnesota's win on Saturday, had multiple chances to solidify his role on the 53-man roster. Instead, Vedvik missed his two field goal attempts from 43 and 54 yards, which sailed wide left and wide right, respectively. The most realistic role for Vedvik, after he was traded to Minnesota from Baltimore in exchange for a fifth-round pick, appeared to be as the specialist who handled kickoffs, punting and long field goals. Putting all kicking and punting duties on someone who is essentially still a rookie felt like a stretch to begin with. Now, Minnesota faces more questions at the position after Matt Wile handled all six punts (averaged 47.3 yards per punt, put two inside the 20). The fourth preseason game could decide this competition for good. While kicker Dan Bailey remained on the sideline throughout the third preseason game, coach Mike Zimmer opted to go for two after a fourth-quarter Mike Boone touchdown made the game, 13-9. It's possible Zimmer was trying to be strategic with the score, although it still would have been a one-possession game even with a made 2-point conversion. Zimmer also might have been sending Vedvik a message by not letting him attempt the extra point. -- Courtney Cronin.........https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/27438843/nfl-preseason-week-3-takeaways-now-texans-rb

He has a big leg and that he just needs to be consistent there!

The next game will determine where he goes from here. I think he was just amped up in making his debut there.

I'd be surprised if they didn't at least look him over. They were supposed to be in the hunt for him earlier.

Eric did very well. I think the Vikes gave up on him too soon. He'll eventually find a team and stick just like Hauschka and Gano.

His legacy continues with the Yets.

He missed an extra point kick and a FG kick.

Jets lost 17- 16.
