Seahawks sign former Vikings kicker Blair Walsh

By Matthew Coller

The most devastating moment of Blair Walsh’s career came against his new team.

ESPN’s Field Yates is reporting that the former Minnesota Vikings kicker has signed with the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks have signed former Vikings K Blair Walsh, per league source.

Walsh was released by the Vikings after going just 12-for-16 on field goals and 15-for-19 on extra point attempts last season. His struggles seemed to carry over from a crushing miss in the Wild Card round of the playoffs in 2015 when he missed a 27-yard field goal that would have beaten the Seahawks and allowed the Vikings to move on to the Divisional round.

Minnesota replaced their former Pro Bowl kicker with Kai Forbath, who made all 15 of his field goal attempts as a Viking.

The post Seahawks sign former Vikings kicker Blair Walsh appeared first on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
