Vedvik secured a future contract with Washington on Monday. Vedvik hasn't appeared in an NFL game since his first in 2019, where he missed both his one field-goal and extra-point attempt. Since the kicker has also proven he's an option at punter, it's unclear how exactly Washington plans on utilizing him.
Vedvik could be called up from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Lions if Dustin Hopkins (groin) can't play, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports. Vedvik has only one appearance in the NFL under his belt, but he could get another shot in Detroit on Sunday. Hopkins is officially listed as questionable, and coach Ron Rivera has said that the decision on his availability could come down to a game-time call.
Washington signed Vedvik to the practice squad Friday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. The spot on the practice squad opened up following the promotion of Joshua Garnett to the active roster. The punter/kicker hybrid's only career NFL action came in one game with the Jets last season, during which he failed to convert his sole field-goal attempt.
The Panthers waived Vedvik on Saturday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. The punter-kicker hybrid couldn't make it past cut day in Carolina, as the Panthers are rolling with Joey Slye at kicker and Joseph Charlton at punter. With plenty of uncertainty in 2020, Vedvik should be a practice squad candidate who can be called upon in a pinch.
Vedvik signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Tuesday. Vedvik was picked up off waivers to start the season, but his stint with the Jets didn't last long. The 25-year-old kicker missed a field goal and an extra point in Week 1's 17-16 loss to the Bills, so Gang Green quickly replaced him with Sam Ficken. Vedvik may compete with Stephen Hauschka for the Bills' starting job in 2020, but the former has an uphill battle since Hauschka had a strong end to the season and is under contract for two more years. Vedvik also can work as a punter, so he could be assigned to battle Corey Bojorquez for that role.
