Other Roster Moves:

The Vikings just traded a fifth-round pick to the Ravens for Vedvik earlier this preseason, but he failed to win either the starting kicker or punter position. 

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. He was traded to the Vikings earlier this month for a 2020 fifth-round pick.

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.

Henderson, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2017. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2,545,164 contract when the Broncos waived him coming out of the preseason.

Henderson was on and off of the Jets’ practice squad in 2018 before returning to New York on an exclusive rights contract this offseason. 

In 2018, Henderson appeared in three games for the Jets and rushed for 19 yards on two carries.
