The Vikings made the tough call to cut kicker Blair Walsh, and they’re replacing him with one of the guys they looked at as an option recently.
According to Tom Pelissero of the USA Today, the Vikings are expected to replace their now-former kicker with Kai Forbath.
Forbath was one of six kickers to work out for the Vikings last week, along with Randy Bullock, Zach Hocker and Travis Coons and rookies Marshall Koehn and Aldrick Rosas.
Forbath was with the Saints last season, and kicked for Washington from 2012-15, with stints with the Buccaneers and Cowboys as well. He’s a career 84.1 percent field goal kicker.
