Mike Zimmer gives ruthless answer on Daniel Carlson cut

19 September, 2018, 00:21 | Author: Felix Jensen
  • Mike Zimmer gave the most cold-blooded explanation for cutting the Vikings kicker

He became one of the greatest kickers in college history, never missing an extra point in almost two hundred attempts and set the SEC scoring record with 480 points.

The team announced on Monday that they've made a decision to cut ties with Carlson in a move that comes less than 24 hours after the kicker's disastrous 0-for-3 performance in Green Bay on Sunday.

The news of the Vikings saying goodbye to the rookie kicker was reported prior to Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer's weekly presser on Monday afternoon. "But, you know, things happen, I guess".

Bailey made 91.2 percent of his kicks in indoor/domed stadiums and has never missed a point after attempt in 145 tries at home.

Bailey was released from the Cowboys on September 1.

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.

They didn't immediately announce a replacement for Carlson. Upon his return, he missed five of 13 field goal attempts and also had the first two failed extra points of his seven-year National Football League career. He scored 130 points during the regular season and hit three field goals against the Saints to send the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game, including a 49- and 53-yarder in the fourth quarter.

"Nah, that's water off a duck's back", Zimmer said.

There are multiple reports that Bailey turned down four strong offers previously. "We'll get some more sixth-rounders next year, I'm not anxious about that".

To make room on the roster, the Vikings also waived wide receiver Stacy Coley.
