Buffalo Bills: Players who could get cut before taking a snap
Kaare Vedvik has bounced around the league since entering as an undrafted free agent in 2018 with the Baltimore Ravens. He spent that season with the Ravens but the following offseason was traded to the Minnesota Vikings for a fifth round pick.
However, his time with the Vikings was short lived as the Vikings added Dan Bailey and cut Vedvik prior to the season. He was claimed off waivers and joined the New York Jets and was actually their starting kicker for the Week 1 matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
He struggled in that game, including a missed extra point which was the deciding factor in the Bills 17-16 victory to start the year. He was waived after that game and it wasn’t until December that he was back with an NFL team, this time on the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad.
The Bills signed Vedvik shortly after their season ended to a reserves/futures contract. The expectation is that, even though he has primarily been a placekicker, he will be competing with Corey Bojorquez for the starting punting job.
Bojorquez entered last offseason on shaky ground after struggling the year prior. However, he had a solid season last year and should be the favorite entering training camp. If he continues to play at the level he did last year, Vedvik may be looking for his sixth team in three seasons.
