When the Minnesota Vikings had kicker tryouts last week, I knew it was coming for Blair Walsh. He was on a very short leash.
It’s unfortunate that Walsh lost his job, but the team gave him many opportunities to fix the problem. The Vikings needed to try to find a kicker that will help them win games and not one they have to worry about using. They had lost faith in Walsh so they had to move on.
Hopefully, Kai Forbath will be able to give them some faith again in kickers. Making the change was the best for the team because this right now needs all the help they can get.
For Walsh, he is going to have to improve his mechanics if he wants to get another chance with a different team because right now, it looks like his NFL days are done.
