Vikings release Ryan Longwell

It was the end of a long relationship Monday when the Vikings have cut longtime kicker Ryan Longwell.

Longwell sent out a tweet thanking “Viking Nation” for their support over the years and the Vikings later confirmed that they had parted ways with a man they signed to a four-year contract extension just last year. At first glance it might seem that Longwell, who turns 38 in August, might have decided not to keep playing, but Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN in Minneapolis reports that it was not a mutual parting of the ways.

The Vikings will now likely give the job to Blair Walsh, the rookie from Georgia that they took in the sixth round of the draft. Walsh connected on just over 50 percent of his field goal attempts as a senior..........

I'd say we should unretire him, but it's bad enough that the Vikings got sloppy seconds. Don't need their terrible thirds.

Bummer. I've always liked Longwell and was bummed when we released him.

I hope he plays another year and he plays against the Vikings and gets a game winning field goal. Lets Box!

Semantics, but he wasn't released, he chose to play with the Vikings because of the controlled climate. He made it clear he wanted to finish his career in a dome or in a warm climate like Tampa Bay or San Diego, etc.

I liked him too. He got a bad rap for kickoffs. When he lined up for anything 45 or less, I felt it was money. I still think it was a mistake to pass the ball instead of giving Longwell a chance to win it with a 50+ FG indoors.

Don't forget he wanted to go to a city that had better restaurants than Applebees.
