The Vikings will not be making a move with Blair Walsh on Tuesday after working out a handful of kickers, the Star Tribune has confirmed.
Free agents Kai Forbath, Aldrick Rosas and Randy Bullock were among the legs the Vikings tried out after Walsh, the fifth-year pro, missed two kicks and botched a kickoff at the end of an overtime loss to the Lions on Sunday.
Patience has been tested after Walsh’s 27-yard miss that knocked the Vikings out of the playoffs last season. Walsh has missed four of his 16 field goal attempts this year for a 75 percent conversion rate that ranks 24th in the league. Walsh is also tied for a league-worst three missed extra point attempts, including one that bounced off the right upright on Sunday.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the Vikings’ initial plans after the workouts.
