Minnesota Vikings release kicker Daniel Carlson, add free agent Dan Bailey

Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein

The Minnesota Vikings have signed kicker Dan Bailey, owner of the second-best field goal percentage in National Football League history and replacement for rookie Daniel Carlson.

Following the Week 2 tie against the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings have quickly decided part ways with rookie kicker Daniel Carlson after missing all three of his field goal attempts including the game-winner.

Missing one field goal is bad.

Bailey has made 186 of 211 field-goal attempts, an accuracy greater than 88 percent that trails only Baltimore's Justin Tucker. Carlson also missed a field goal in the first half from 48 yards away.

During pre-season, Joseph managed three field goals and converted both extra points from touchdowns. Most recently, Blair Walsh missed a potential game-winning 27-yarder against the Seattle Seahawks in the 2016 Wild Card game. But all the leg strength in the world won't make up for any setbacks on the mental side of this pressure-packed job. "But, you know, things happen, I guess".

Asked about what went into the decision to let go of Carlson, the Vikings' head coach responded with his own question.

"It's a chip shot", Zimmer said postgame. "We'll get some more sixth-rounders next year".

The Vikings signed wide receiver Aldrick Robinson, a seventh-year veteran who was most recently with San Francisco and played with quarterback Kirk Cousins in Washington in 2012 and 2013. "He's a fast guy", Zimmer said.
