Vikings make Forbath signing official after cutting Walsh

Vikings make Forbath signing official after cutting Walsh

There is a lot of legwork to be done when starting a new business, and part of that legwork is.

"Blair is one of my best friends, and he will be for the rest of my life", McDermott said. "He's kicked before (in the NFL), and then he had a UCLA connection with the snapper and the holder". "But this is a business, and it's not always a business that is kind".

Kai Forbath had to hustle Tuesday to get to Minnesota.

"They didn't really give us any sort of idea who they would go with".

"This isn't my first time coming in and replacing someone". "It's nice having Jeff and Kevin in here". Benjamin Franklin said this and they are words to. "So I'm feeling pretty confident going into it".

Forbath, 29, most recently spent the 2015 season with the Saints after spending the previous four seasons in Washington.

Forbath, who played with Vikings punter Jeff Locke and long snapper Kevin McDermott at UCLA from 2008 to 2010, made 60 of his 69 career field goal attempts with the Redskins but struggled in New Orleans past year, going 10-for-15 on field goal attempts.

Zimmer said Walsh's missed 27-yard field in the final minute of regulation of the Vikings' 10-9 wild-card playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks in January wasn't a distraction for the coach as Walsh's struggles transitioned into the 2016 regular season, and Zimmer didn't want to speak on the potential of teammates losing confidence in Walsh this year. When Mike Zimmer cuts someone or they leave the team, it also sends a message to everyone else.

You've probably heard horror stories about root canals and dreaded needing one at some point, but.

Yes, when a losing streak hits four in this league, everyone walks on egg shells.

"I'm sad for the guy, but at the end of the day, I understand this is a business, and you have one job to do, and you've got to do it", guard Alex Boone said.

Jake Long had surgery Wednesday on his left Achilles tendon, bringing the total of tackles the Vikings have lost to injury since the week before training camp to five.
