Zimmer was asked, "What went into the decision to let Carlson go?"
"It's disappointing when you've got an opportunity to win the football game there at the end and you come up with a tie".
Zimmer: Yeah, it was pretty easy. The Minnesota head coach had no problem providing an answer to that.
Zimmer has never been one to mince his words and he kept up with this habit with his responses on Monday.
It really should not be too surprising to anyone that the Vikings cut ties with Carlson on Monday.
As the National Football League season picks up, coaches are making it clear to kickers that there is absolutely no room for error.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Vikings will sign former Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey. No, of course not. Forbath was fine and all, but in a season with Super Bowl expectations, they drafted Auburn's Daniel Carlson in the fifth round, higher than any other kicker drafted in the history of a Minnesota franchise that's.
