MINNEAPOLIS – Less than three weeks after the fifth round was sent to the Baltimore people in exchange for Kaare Vedvik, the Minnesota Vikings have cut the kicker / handful of 25 years of age.
The Vikings separated ways on Saturday with Laquon Treadwell, a first-round draft pick-up, who failed to play a role in Minnesota's triumph in the three seasons after drafting it in 23rd place in 2016.
After uncertainty about their specialties, the Vikings will go with Dan Bailey as their cousin, Matt Wile as picker and rookie Austin Cutting at a long snapper. The hope is, by source, that the team will be able to sign Vedvik to the squad of practice on Sunday if it clears a waiver.
The Norwegian-born combo karaoke 12-of-13 was on field goals during the two prefabricated reasons in Baltimore before he went on 1-for-4 on such a start with the Vikings. When they arrived in Minnesota, the Vikings' coaches considered that Vedvik was able to kick and punish responsibilities, which he had previously dealt with during his collegiate career at Marshall, although there were difficulties in handling heavy burden – given cause.
Vedvik's difficulties were more frequent during the last days of the season. In Minnesota's last practice before departing in Buffalo, Vedvik 5-for-9 went on field goals. When asked what he had learned to handle the cricketers struggling in the season, coach Mike Zimmer noted the role he must have to help these players overcome obstacles.
"It's a good question," Zimmer said. "I think the biggest thing is probably more patience."
Treadwell had come out of the 2018 campaign where he recorded his first landing as a pro, noting that a career had taken 302 yards in charge of the team in fallen passports. Minnesota chose not to pick up the fifth year of the receiver, which would cost the Vikings $ 10.162 million next season.
Instead, Minnesota takes $ 2,506,360 as a dead cap through Treadwell's release before his fourth season, because of his signed bonus ($ 1,356,360) and the guaranteed portion of his 2019 salary ($ 1.15 million).
According to a source that is familiar with the language in the Treadwell contract, supply is offset, which means that if Treadwell is claimed on a waiver, the guarantee owed by the Vikings will reduce the amount paid by the new staff.
The news about Treadwell's release varies and the way these three seasons last. Minnesota tried to trade Treadwell with this season and at various points going back to the 2018 season – on the last day and again towards the October trade deadline.
The 6-foot-2 receiver, 215 pounds never made the expected level when he was drafted in the first round as a big, physical outside receiver who could come up in the slot and create inconsistencies while he was run below routes. Others put Treadwell on in the deep chart and failed the receiver's position No. 3 behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs get during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
The Vikings did not set aside ways with many first round picks before their fourth season. Troy Williamson was the last one, pick Pick No. In the 2005 draft, the Vikings traded them for the sixth round after three seasons.
Other notable cuts in Minnesota included Kyle Sloter, which had the highest rating of the main season among the fourth quarters with 40 tries or more. The 39-de-51 Sloter was entering the foreground for 443 yards, four casualties, one interception and a 120X passer rating.
The Vikings also tried to find a trading partner for a Sloter on Saturday before it was released at the deadline. The quarterback came to Minnesota in 2017 after Denver was waived, when he started his NFL career as a free withdrawn agent. Roller was quickly advanced from the practice squad to an active roster due to non-contact knee injury Sam Bradford suffered in early 2017 season and spent the background as a Case Keenum backup.
Sloter never saw action in a regular season game in Minnesota but he sent a large number in pre-flight trips regularly. Despite a significant stat line in those games, Sloter did not accept a second team representative at a quarterback, whose role is John Mannion accepts this season in Minnesota behind Kirk Cousins.
"I do not know that you know all the little details about everything, that you see how it goes and that it does the game," Zimmer said on a preliminary indicator Sloter. "It must be much better in many of the other parts of being a quarter-back. Proper checks do, people put in the right formation, ensuring that the offer is there, without the time clock being on. ask when it is eight front wall There are many things that need to be improved better if it is trying to be a backup backup. "
Earlier in the season, Zimmer criticized Sloter's abilities in practice compared to what he does in games. Although forensic practices are open to the media in July and August, there are practices in season. According to multiple staff sources, these practices had the greatest factors in relation to Sloter without moving up the depth chart to three seasons last. His struggle to operate the huddle, the right play and the right depth as well as his accuracy and decision-making, hampered Sweden's ability to secure itself as a backup of Cousins.
