Vikings cut WR Stacy Coley to make room for Dan Bailey

Vikings sign Dan Bailey, waive Daniel Carlson Mike Zimmer has brutal quote about cutting struggling Vikings kicker

The Vikings' decision to boot Carlson comes after he missed three field goals in Minnesota's 29-29 tie with the Packers Sunday, including the potential game-winning kick in overtime.

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.

Carlson made a 48-yard attempt plus three extra points in the opener on September 9 against San Francisco and he sent nine of 10 kickoffs over two games into the end zone for touchbacks, but leg strength can't cover up inconsistency from shorter distances. But on Sunday, in his second regular-season game, he went 0-of-3 on field goals.

Bailey, the second most accurate kicker in National Football League history, has an 88 percent career success rate in field goals, converting 186 of 211 attempts.

Only Zane Gonzalez performed worse than Carlson: He missed two field goals and two PATs.

In an effort to improver their production on special teams, the Vikings made the switch to Dan Bailey at kicker. "We expect to win that, and I expect to make those kicks to win the game for the team", Carlson said.

Carlson sent 9 of 10 kickoffs for touchbacks, and the other one was a squib returned for 8 yards to Green Bay's 31. I was concerned that it'd take a few weeks for Cousins and company to get on the same page and because of that, and how rough their early season schedule was, they'd end up digging a hole they might not be able to get out of.

Apparently three means you're out of job.

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

As a lifelong Vikings fan, I've come to realize that you have to look for silver linings during dark times, because that's really all we've had in the fifty plus years of this teams existence. To make room on the roster, the Vikings waived wide receiver Stacy Coley.

"He really liked him".
