  • Vikings sign Dan Bailey as kicker

"It's hard to figure out", Zimmer said.

The 30-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Cowboys and played in 108 career games.

With Carlson gone, the Vikings will look to add Dan Bailey, who was released by the Cowboys during the beginning of the month.

Sunday's game against the Packers ending in a 29-29 tie "feels like a loss" for Zimmer. That included a possible game-winner.

Carlson missed one in regular time and two more in overtime.

Bailey's journey took an interesting turn two weeks ago.

Bailey has been a free agent since September 1 when the Dallas Cowboys cut him after seven seasons.

Liverpool-PSG (2-1) — Résultat (mi-temps)
Liverpool sera en tout cas un sacré morceau pour des Parisiens pas encore toujours souverain dans le jeu. Mais après tout, si ça peut lui servir pour la suite de la compétition, ce n'est peut-être pas plus mal.

The Vikings drafted Carlson in the fifth round back in April.

Carlson and Forbath competed throughout the spring offseason program and training camp before the kicking competition ended with the veteran being released on August 20.

He's coming off the worst season of career after missing four games because of a groin injury. With a field goal rate greater than 88 percent, Bailey is behind only Baltimore's Justin Tucker for the best percentage in league history.

As he learned with his recent release, the success Bailey has had throughout his career doesn't insulate him if he doesn't consistently perform. Thing hit rock bottom, however, when he missed three field goal attempts Sunday against the Packers. The third of Carlson's misses came with just seconds left in overtime, costing the Vikings an opportunity to escape with a huge win against a divisional opponent.

Carlson was awarded the job when the Vikings let Kai Forbath go on August 20, and Carlson pulled two field-goal tries wide left in an exhibition game four days later.

Carlson was awarded the job when the Vikings let Kai Forbath go on August 20, and Carlson pulled two field goal tries wide left in a preseason game four days later. "He's got to make it".

With a roster built for the Super Bowl, the Minnesota Vikings were in no position to practice patience with a struggling kicker.
