The Vikings said goodbye last month to punter Jeff Locke, who signed with the Colts. They’ve now replaced him with a former Cardinal.

The Vikings have announced the addition of punter Ryan Quigley.

Quigley, who spent three years with the Jets, appeared in six games with the Cardinals in 2016 before being released. Quigley also had a month in the offseason with the Eagles.

He has 51 career regular-season games and a net average of 38.9 yards, and a career gross average of 44.6 yards. He joins Taylor Symmank as the two punters currently on the roster.

    I remember when we drafted Blair Walsh and Jeff Locke and were supposed to be set for 10 years of great kicking! As usual Spieldope makes bad choices in the draft. This guy is worse then Kluwe!

    I hope that this guy is in good shape – he’s going to be very busy.

    They may have to carry 2 punters on the roster. One may not be able to handle the load.

    Good move, they would be well advised to stockpile punters at the rate they will be wearing them out

    Well his 40 was 5.23 so he has that going for him. The defense will create a lot of turnovers shortening the field. He doesn’t have to boom his kicks.

    They’ll need all the punters they can get!

    The horrible Packers special teams unit just wet itself!

    Umm, I didn’t even know we had a Taylor Symmank on the team.

    Jeff Locke made the team four years in a row and he couldn’t punt a football to save his life. Apparently, the Vikings coaches don’t care about how well you can punt as long as the gunners are good and you don’t give up TDs.

    The Vikings are hoping this guy at least knows which way the laces are supposed to face.

    Can he make a 15 yd FG

  13. aaronitout12 says: Apr 3, 2017 8:10 PM

    But how does this help the QB troubles?

    They’re that bad? Maybe the Vikings can finally improve upon their 13.3% victory record against the Packers in their last 15 games played against each other.

    What do you think?

    Ah, punter jokes, I especially like the one about needing two on the roster.

  16. golforepar says: Apr 3, 2017 8:59 PM

    The Vikings are already planning on punting alot! They say its better than missing 26 yard FGs!

    Too bad it doesn’t help their issues at running back, offensive line, etc.

    Yeah, hopefully very busy holding for a lot of PATs.

    That joke just gets better the 10th time you read it.

    Some real intelligent football minds out there.

  21. filthymcnasty3 says: Apr 5, 2017 6:04 PM

    At some point if might make sense to just punt on first down, get their defense back on the field, and stop their crowd from boo’ing.
