As expected, and in some cases previously reported, the Vikings worked out six kickers on Tuesday: Randy Bullock, Travis Coons, Kai Forbath, Zach Hocker, Marshall Koehn and Aldrick Rosas.
Earlier Tuesday, ESPN reported that the Vikings have decided to stick with struggling kicker Blair Walsh. If the Vikings liked what they saw from one or more of the six they had in Tuesday and want to make a change later, those players remain a phone call away.
Walsh has missed four field goals and three extra points this season. He missed an extra point and had a field goal blocked in last week’s overtime loss to the Lions.
Bullock was with the Texans for parts of four seasons and also kicked in eight games for the Jets last year. The Giants signed him and used him as their kicker for this year’s season opener with then-kicker Josh Brown suspended.
Coons kicked for the Browns last season but was cut in training camp this year. Hocker was drafted by the Redskins in the seventh round in 2014 but he didn’t win the job there. He kicked in six games for the Saints and two for the Rams last year. Forbath kicked for Washington for parts of four seasons and also kicked for the Saints for 10 games last season.
Koehn was an undrafted rookie who was with the Dolphins in preseason before being released. Rosas was in a similar spot earlier this year with the Titans.
