Kai Forbath: Could join Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath will work out for the Jets on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Forbath was released by the Vikings on Monday, losing a kicking battle to rookie fifth-round pick Daniel Carlson. The Jets appear to have zero confidence in Taylor Bertolet, as they claimed Jason Myers off waivers Tuesday and may soon add another kicker to the roster.

Vikings' Kai Forbath: Misses field goal versus Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath went 1-for-2 on field goal attempts during Saturday's 14-10 preseason loss to the Jaguars.

Forbath connected on a 44-yard field goal in the first quarter, but he watched in agony as an attempt from 41 yards out clanked off the upright in the second stanza. He is in the midst of a position battle with rookie Daniel Carlson this preseason and Saturday's miscue could give the latter first crack at field goal opportunities next week against the Seahawks.

Vikings' Kai Forbath: No decision yet on starting kicker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath was limited to kickoffs in Minnesota's first preseason game while rookie Daniel Carlson was 4-for-4 in field goal and point-after attempts (including a 57-yard field goal). However, head coach Mike Zimmer said the competition remains open. "We want to make sure we're doing the right thing as opposed to a hasty decision," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The two kickers will likely reverse roles in the second preseason game with Forbath getting chances to kick field goals. Forbath re-signed with Minnesota this offseason but the Vikings later took Carlson in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. We'd think Carlson would be the favorite for the job since the Vikings spent a draft pick on him, but the competition remains open.

Vikings' Kai Forbath: Close battle for kicker job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath and rookie Daniel Carlson were "neck and neck" all spring in the competition for the starting placekicker job and the competition may last through the first couple of preseason games or longer, special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer told Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com.

Forbath re-signed with Minnesota this offseason but the Vikings later took Carlson in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. We'd think Carlson would be the favorite for the job since the Vikings spent a draft pick on him, but the competition will be one to watch this preseason.

Vikings' Kai Forbath: Could be on the way out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forbath's tenure in Minnesota appears to be in jeopardy following the Vikings' selection of kicker Daniel Carlson in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Chris Tomasson of TwinCities.com reports.

Forbath re-signed with Minnesota this offseason but the renewing of vows between the two could be short-lived. Newly-acquired kicker Daniel Carlson is believed to be one best kickers in this year's draft class. Forbath's time in Minnesota could be up, but he'll likely still be kicking for someone else next season.
