1. Kicker

The Vikings made a lot of roster moves during the 2019 offseason. Most of their transactions made sense and fans seemed to be on board with the majority of their decisions.

But there is one move Minnesota made this year that has boggled my mind. That is the re-signing of kicker Dan Bailey.

Bailey was horrible a season ago. He made a dismal 75 percent of his field goals when he was brought in to be the savior after the disaster that was Daniel Carlson.

Bailey was by far one of the weakest parts of the Vikings’ roster a year ago, and the fact he is sitting on top of the kicker depth chart as it stands now, with absolutely no competition, makes this easily the weakest position on the team’s current roster.

Why Minnesota hasn’t brought in a free agent or a young undrafted rookie to at least compete with Bailey is a complete and utter mystery. The Vikings did hire Nate Kaeding to be a part-time kicking coach so maybe that will help Bailey perform better this year.

Minnesota had little cap space this offseason and the only reason Bailey is still on the team is that he came at such a cheap price. Unfortunately for the Vikings in 2019, they may be getting exactly what they are paying for with their kicker.
