Zimmer: Vikings To Work Out Kickers On Tuesday

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (WCCO) – Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh has had his struggles this year, and he soon might be out of a job.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that he plans to have free agent kickers work out at Winter Park on Tuesday. He did not give any names as to who would be working out.

Walsh missed an extra point and had a field goal blocked in the Vikings; 22-16 overtime loss to the Lions on Sunday. Had his field goal try not been blocked, it would’ve been far too low and wide left to have any chance of being good.

Walsh is 12-of-16 on field goal attempts this year and has missed three extra points, which is the most in the NFL.

Vikings fans still haven’t gotten over Walsh’s miss in the playoffs against Seattle last year that would’ve given Minnesota a victory. If the Vikings sign another kicker Tuesday, it would likely signal the end of Walsh’s time in Minnesota.
