Vikings release kicker Kai Forbath

Vikings release kicker Kai Forbath

The Vikings made a choice at kicker. The headliner was a move that had been predicted for some time. The 30-year old veteran was signed by the Vikings in 2016 following the release of Blair Walsh. Last season, his only full season with the team, he made 32 of this 38 attempted field goals. Forbath connected on a 44-yard field goal Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but later missed on a 41-yard attempt. Kai did a great job while he was here, he's a good kid. "We just made a decision to go with Daniel".

Minnesota Vikings kicker Kai Forbath's hold on the job appeared tenuous after the team traded up to draft Auburn standout Daniel Carlson in the fifth round of this year's draft.
