The Minnesota Vikings made a kicker swap after just two weeks. The rookie is out. A veteran is expected to be brought in.
The fifth-round pick missed three field goals in Sunday's tie with the Green Bay Packers, including two potential game-winners in overtime. The second OT miss was a straightforward 35-yarder.
Bailey was cut before the season by the Dallas Cowboys, the franchise with which he'd spent seven seasons. The veteran reportedly declined several offers waiting for the right landing spot. He found it in Minnesota.
Bailey's career 88.2 career field-goal average places him second-all time in NFL history, behind only Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens. The 30-year-old kicker dealt with a groin injury last season that forced him to miss four games. Bailey ended the season with a career-low 75 percent field goal rate and missed the only two extra points of his career in 278 attempts.
