Lions Tried Out Six Players Including P Kaare Vedvik

According to Howard Balzer, the Detroit Lions brought in six kickers and punters for tryouts on Thursday including Kaare Vedvik

The full list of tryouts for the Lions includes:

  1. K Greg Joseph
  2. K Giorgio Tavecchio
  3. P Matt Darr
  4. P Drew Kaser
  5. P Kasey Redfern
  6. P Kaare Vedvik

Balzer adds that the Lions also hosted K Younghoe Koo for a visit, but he has since signed on to the Patriots’ practice squad. 

Vedvik has reportedly made the decision to focus on being a punter and a kickoff specialist as opposed to being a placekicker. 

Vedvik, 25, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall back in 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $570,000 for the 2019 season.

The Ravens traded Vedvik to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick, but he was cut loose after only a few weeks. New York claimed Vedvik off of waivers before waiving him a few weeks into the regular season. 

During his college career at Marshall, Vedvik converted 10 of 16 field goal attempts (62.5 percent) to go along with 41 of 42 extra point tries (97.6 percent) over the course of 26 games.
