Vikings cut rookie Carlson after 3 missed FGs, target Bailey

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) With a roster built for the Super Bowl, the Minnesota Vikings were in no position to practice patience with a struggling kicker.

Rather than hoping Daniel Carlson could refocus after missing all three of his field goal attempts in the tie game at Green Bay, the Vikings waived the rookie on Monday and punted on the fifth-round draft pick they used on him five months ago.

Two of Carlson's misses came in overtime on Sunday, forcing the Vikings to settle for a 29-29 draw with the rival Packers. When asked by a reporter how the decision was reached, coach Mike Zimmer said, "Did you see the game?"
