Walsh missed one of two field goals Sunday's 46-18 win over the Colts but made five extra points to finish with eight points, his highest total since Week 1. Walsh's first miss of the year came from 37 yards, although he did hit a 44-yarder. The Seahawks offense came to life in the second half, providing Walsh with more scoring opportunities. Seattle plays at the Rams in Week 5, but whether the offense shows up is always a question for this team.
Walsh made two field goals Sunday but missed his only point after attempt. Walsh's long was of 27 yards. His penchant for missing PATs is partly what got him released in Minnesota last year.
Walsh made all four of his field-goal attempts Friday, including a 47-yarder, in Seattle's preseason game against the Chiefs. Walsh has had a good preseason, making eight of nine field goals with two from 50-plus yards. His only miss was from 53 yards.
Walsh signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Walsh struggled mightily in 2016, missing four extra points and making 12-of-16 field goal attempts prior to being released in November. Steven Hauschka, the Seahawks' kicker in 2016, will be a free agent upon the end of the league year, meaning Walsh could be set to handle the kicking duties in Seattle in 2017.
Walsh was released by the Vikings on Tuesday. The Vikings worked out other kickers last week and decided to stick with Walsh, but the team reversed course Tuesday after Walsh missed his fourth extra-point and eighth overall attempt in Sunday's loss to the Redskins, and decided to give him his release. The Vikings have yet to announce who will replace Walsh on the roster, but they will have a new kicker in Week 11 for the first time since 2011.
