Vikings Release K Blair Walsh

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Blair Walsh’s days as a kicker for the Minnesota Vikings are over.

The Vikings announced Tuesday morning that Walsh has been released. The Vikings brought in six kickers last week after Walsh missed an extra point and had a field goal blocked.

Walsh also missed an extra point in Sunday’s loss to the Redskins. He leads the NFL with four missed extra points this year (15-of-19) and is also 12-of-16 on field goal tries this season. He had an errant kickoff against the Lions two weeks ago that helped them get enough field position for a game-tying field goal as time expired. The Lions won the game in overtime.

Walsh hasn’t been the same since missing a short field goal against the Seahawks in the playoffs last year. He was in his fifth season with the Vikings after being drafted in 2012.

Who the Vikings will replace Walsh with to kick remains to be seen.
