Kicker Dan Bailey got the boot from the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday in a salary cap-related roster move.
Bailey, 33, spent three years with the team and was due a bonus this month tied to the three-year, $10 million deal he signed in March 2020. He had a 2021 cap hit of $3.8 million.
He made a career-worst 68.2 percent of his field goals in 2020 and missed five extra points in the team’s final five regular-season games.
The Vikings signed kicker Greg Joseph in February.
Bailey signed with the Vikings in September 2018 after being released by the Dallas Cowboys.
In 46 regular-season games with the Vikings, Bailey made 63 of 79 field goals (79.7 percent) with a long of 53 and 107 of 118 extra points. He spent the first seven years of his career with the Cowboys, making the Pro Bowl in 2015.
