After several seasons of kicking woes and disappointment from head coach Mike Zimmer, the Vikings have decided to finally make moves in the right direction. Despite Mike Priefer turning down the Vikings’ latest offer in favor of joining the Browns, the Vikings have made an interesting hire that should provide some relief to the kicking curse the Vikings have felt since the late 1990s.

The Vikings hired Nate Kaeding, the former kicker for the Chargers and Dolphins, as a kicking consultant. Kaeding is known for his regular season kicking percentage of 86.2%, which puts him at ninth in all-time kicking percentages. However, Kaeding was also known for questionable performances in the playoffs. Despite this, the Vikings players and staff appear to be happy with their newest hire.
