TRADE: Ravens Trading K Kaare Vedvik To Vikings

     

According to Adam Schefter, the Ravens are trading K Kaare Vedvik to the Vikings for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick. 

The Vikings clearly were one of the two NFC North teams that reportedly inquired about Vedvik. Schefter notes Vedvik could play both kicker and punter for Minnesota. 

Other likely interested teams include the Bears and Jets, who have unsettled kicking situations. The Bears have had a highly-publicized kicking battle after moving on from Cody Parkey this offseason, while Jets K Chandler Catanzaro just retired

Vedvik, 25, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall back in May of last year. 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 placed him on the non-football injury list last year with a head injury.

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.
