Panthers Release K/P Kaare Vedvik From Practice Squad


The Carolina Panthers announced Tuesday that they’ve released K/P Kaare Vedvik from their practice squad. 

Vedvik, 26, 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. 

Vedvik later signed on to the Bears’ practice squad in December. From there, he agreed to a futures contract with the Bills before being waived last month. 

The Panthers claimed him off waivers and re-signed him to their taxi squad soon after. 

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.
