Kaare Vedvik joins the Vikings via trade with the Baltimore Ravens for an undisclosed draft selection. Vedvik spent the 2018 season on the Ravens Non-Football Injury (NFI) list after joining the team as a rookie free agent on May 4, 2018. Vedvik appeared in 38 career games at Marshall, seeing action as both a kicker and punter while earning first-team All-Conference USA as a senior in 2017. Born in Stavanger, Norway, Vedvik attended high school in McPherson, Kansas as an exchange student for his junior year before returning to Norway for his senior year.
The Vikings have waived long snapper Kevin McDermott to make room for the new kicker/punter.
