Kickers?!?! Dan Bailey in Minnesota, Greg Joseph in Cleveland, and rankings

Kickers are people too!

The Vikings cut kicker Daniel Carlson after missing three vital field goals against the Packers. On Monday the Vikings replaced Carlson with veteran kicker, Dan Bailey. Bailey struggled with the Dallas Cowboys last season, but still holds the record as the second most accurate kicker in NFL history. The Vikings hope to get vintage Bailey as they head into week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Rookie kicker Greg Joseph has been signed by the Cleveland Browns to replace Zane Gonzalez. Gonzalez missed 2 field goals and 2 extra points in the 21-18 loss against the Saints. Joseph is coming in as an undrafted free agent from Florida Atlantic where he made 69.5% of his field goal attempts.
