Vikings acquire kicker Vedvik from Ravens

Ravens kicker Kaare Vedvik is exactly where he wants to be even though he knows he might not be there for long Ravens kicker Kaare Vedvik is exactly where he wants to be even though he knows he might not be there for long

The move ends the competition with rookie Austin Cutting, a seventh-round pick out of the Air Force who has been awarded the Vikings long snapper job. Just hours later, they informed long-time long snapper Kevin McDermott that he has been released.

McDermott's playing time during Friday's preseason opener at New Orleans, where Cutting took the lead with the field goal operation, was a clear precursor. Giving Wile the boot and using Vedvik as both their punter and emergency placekicker behind Dan Bailey seems like a believable outcome from this trade.

So the Vikings drafted Cutting to be the fourth long snapper, including a late 2015 injury replacement in Jeff Overbaugh, of head coach Mike Zimmer's six seasons in Minnesota.

Minnesota has acquired kicker Kaare Vedvik in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday.

McDermott was entering the third year of a four-year contract extension signed in 2016.

"I'm really fired up for Kaare".

The Ravens had hoped to trade Vedvik due to their consistency at each of the specialist positions, and the former Marshall University kicker and punter demonstrated his ability in Baltimore's first preseason game on Thursday. "I think anytime, if we indeed made a trade, it's to try and get better guys, wherever we do that", Zimmer said before the Vikings confirmed Sunday's roster moves.

Vedvik, a native of where else, Norway, has been solid the past two pre-seasons for the Ravens (who have Justin Tucker for the regular season), making 12-of-13 field goals.

In Baltimore's 29-0 win over the Jaguars on Thursday, Vedvik was 4-for-4 on field goals, with a long of 55, and 2-for-2 on extra points. "I think he's a very professional, mature kid". Minnesota has also used several holders in camp, situationally, instead of punter Matt Wile. The holding we are working on quite a bit.

"He only had two punts, but the first punt was inside the 20, but not by much". "Directionally he still needs to work on going to his left but I think he's done better this camp". I think he's been better this camp.

"No, I don't think so".

A native of Norway, Vedvik spent the entire 2018 season on the non-football injury list for Baltimore after he was assaulted in East Baltimore a day before the final cuts previous year, suffering serious head and facial injuries in the attack that left him hospitalized. He told police then he didn't remember what happened.
