Vikings sign ex-Cowboys kicker Bailey after cutting rookie

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have signed kicker Dan Bailey, owner of the second-best field goal percentage in NFL history and replacement for rookie Daniel Carlson.

Bailey's deal was done on Tuesday, after the Vikings waived Carlson fresh from his 0-for-3 game at Green Bay.

The fifth-round draft pick from Auburn missed field goals of 48, 49 and 35 yards, with the last two failed tries coming in overtime and forcing the Vikings to settle for a 29-29 tie with the rival Packers.
