Vikings Acquire Kicker From Ravens For Draft Pick

Vikings trade 2020 5th-Round Pick for Ravens Kicker/Punter Kaare Vedvik

In order to land Vedvik, the Vikings are sending a 2020 fifth-round draft pick to the Ravens.

The Ravens had hoped to trade Vedvik due to their consistency at each of the specialist positions, and the former Marshall University kicker and punter demonstrated his ability in Baltimore's first preseason game on Thursday.

Vedvik spent all of a year ago on Baltimore's NFI list after the team signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall. Vedvik hit on all four of his field goal attempts, including connecting from 55 yards out.

The trade creates a competition not only at kicker, but possibly at punter in Minnesota. He was a ideal 11-of-11 from 30 to 39 yards out last season, but had his problems from 40 to 49 yards out, where he was just 4-of-9. By cutting the incumbent McDermott, the Vikings have turned over the long snapper role to rookie Austin Cutting, a seventh-round draft pick from Air Force. He could compete with Bailey for the kicker spot, or Matt Wile for the punter position.

"Honestly, I really like Dan Bailey". "I think he's a very professional, mature kid". We've been having some issues with the snap, hold and kick kind of thing.

- After four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, Kevin McDermott's time as a long snapper in Minnesota is over. The holding we're working on quite a bit. Vedvik had made about 90% of his kicks in this year's training camp but missed a 33-yard field goal on Saturday.

Vedvik would've been traded last season, but he was assaulted in East Baltimore before the Ravens could deal him to another team.

But on his first day in Minnesota, Vedvik dropped the tee at the 50-yard line on the field closest to the fans who paid to be at training camp on this Monday. The Ravens placed Vedvik on the non-football injury list, which began his yearlong comeback.
