Mike Zimmer gives ruthless answer on Daniel Carlson cut

Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings signed kicker Dan Bailey to the squad after releasing Daniel Carlson, who missed three kicks in Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers. The Vikings have not yet confirmed that signing. During the 29-29 tie, Carlson missed two kicks in overtime, including a 35-yard attempt as time expired that would have given the Vikings the win at Lambeau Field.

Kickers miss kicks sometimes, and it's worth noting Carlson's two other missed field goals came from 48 and 49 yards out respectively. Bailey has a 91.7 field-goal percentage in a dome and has not missed an extra point at home in 145 career attempts.

As the National Football League season picks up, coaches are making it clear to kickers that there is absolutely no room for error.

S.Africa's top court legalises personal, private cannabis use
The Constitutional Court has handed down its judgement on the private use of marijuana, as reported by eNCA . The order does not extend to use and possession of cannabis by a child, or by an adult in public.

Since Zimmer took the job in 2014, the Vikings have had plenty of these problems.

Walsh was let go midway through the 2016 season in favor of Forbath, whose biggest trouble was extra points. "It's hard to figure out. But, you know, things happen, I guess". "I'm not anxious about that".

To make room for Bailey, the Vikings waived wide receiver Stacy Coley. We shall see what that means for Treadwell, a player they'd most likely bench instead of cutting (unless they really need the roster spot).
