Vikings acquire kicker Kaare Vedvik from Ravens

The team also has a competition at long snapper between holdover Kevin McDermott and seventh-round draft pick Austin Cutting, creating inconsistency in the field-goal unit.

McDermott's playing time during Friday's preseason opener at New Orleans, where Cutting took the lead with the field goal operation, was a clear precursor.

The long snapper rotation during training camp has concerned Zimmer, among other issues, as kicker Dan Bailey remained inconsistent.

The Minnesota Vikings acquired kicker and punter Kaare Vedvik from Batlimore on Sunday in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2020, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Against the Saints, Bailey did not attempt a field goal but made all four of his point-after attempts. Schefter reported that Vedvik could be in line to serve as the Vikings' kicker and punter. "I think he's a very professional, mature kid". And having two long snappers, I think that's added to it a little bit because the timing is different.

Under Mike Zimmer, the Vikings have struggled to find a kicker and punter who alleviate the perpetual concerns of a fan base scarred by shanked kicks. The holding we're working on quite a bit. This will also be basically the second fifth-round pick that the Zimmer regime has used on a kicker in the past couple seasons, which is astounding and while it shows that the team is serious about fixing the position it also makes you wonder about their ability to either establish or foster kicking talent.

He was 4 for 4 on field goals, hitting one from 55 yards.

A native of Norway, Vedvik spent the entire 2018 season on the non-football injury list for Baltimore after he was assaulted in East Baltimore a day before the final cuts past year, suffering serious head and facial injuries in the attack that left him hospitalized. He was hospitalized in September after being found alone with multiple facial injuries. He told police then he didn't remember what happened. The Ravens placed Vedvik on the non-football injury list, which began his yearlong comeback. Baltimore had the luxury to trade Vedvik because it has Justin Tucker, the most accurate kicker in National Football League history.
