Vikings acquire new kicker in trade with Ravens

Vikings acquire new kicker in trade with Ravens

"He's a very professional, mature kid".

Vedvik has kicked and punted for Baltimore, which was set at the position with standouts Justin Tucker and Sam Koch. Having two long-snappers, I think that's adding to it a little bit because the timing's different.

The trade was announced just minutes before Vikings coach Mike Zimmer spoke to reporters on Sunday and he wouldn't acknowledge the trade.

Vedvik, 25, signed with Baltimore as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall in 2018 but sat out all last season after an attack in Baltimore left him with injuries to his face and head. During the game against the Jaguars, he also punted the ball twice and both were over 50 yards.

He will have the rest of the pre-season to prove that he can best veteran Dan Bailey as well as Matt Wile, but considering the fifth-round pick he was traded for (which is a lot for a kicker/punter, as we saw previous year with Daniel Carlson), it'll be surprising if he doesn't stick. "We're working on holding quite a bit".

Abhinav was brought down to the police station around 1 pm and after that, the four of them were present there for almost 4 hours. In her complaint, Shweta pointed out the inappropriate behaviour of her husband, after which, he was called for interrogation.

Vedvik had earned the trade after an impressive showing in the first preseason game. Wile was tied for ninth in the league last season with a 41.5-yard net punting average. The Ravens have no issue at kicker or punter and so the fans didn't pay much attention to the backup specialist as Vedvik worked on his craft. "I think he should have got it closer to the end zone on that one".

"No, I don't think so".

"A lot more emotional than I thought it was going to be", Vedvik told the team's website about Thursday's game. I love football. I love sports.

As a result, they find themselves on the hot-seat and in need for a big performance on Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens to get back on track and to hopefully make a final push during these remaining weeks of the preseason.
