Vikings release kicker Dan Bailey

Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings announced the release of kicker Dan Bailey.

In three seasons with the team, Bailey made 63 of his 79 field goal attempts, including 6-10 from 50 or more yards. However, last year, Bailey made just 15 of 22 attempts.

He also had problems at times last season with extra-point attempts.

The news comes one month to the day after the team signed kicker Greg Joseph to a contract and a week after the team released longtime tight end Kyle Rudolph.
