Vikings Open To Having Kaare Vedvik Kick And Punt

Aug 13, 2019 8:10 AM

The Minnesota Vikings are open to the idea of having Kaare Vedvik serve as both their kicker and punter this season.

The Vikings traded a 2020 fifth-round pick to the Baltimore Ravens for Vedvik on Sunday.

The NFL hasn't had a full-time combo kicker since Frank Corral did so with the Los Angeles Rams in 1981.

"Yeah, if he's good enough, I wouldn't have a problem with that," Mike Zimmer said. "But I don't know. Again, I think everything is a possibility at this point."

Vikings Acquire Kicker From Ravens For Draft Pick

Aug 11, 2019 3:37 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have traded an undisclosed draft pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for kicker Kaare Vedvik.

The pick will be a fifth rounder in 2020, according to a source.

Vedvik, a native of Norway, was 12-of-13 on field goals in the preseason the past two years for Baltimore after being signed as an undrafted kicker in 2018.

In Thursday's preseason opener, Vedvik increased his value by making all four of his field goals, including a 55-yarder, and had two punts over 50 yards.
