Report: Minnesota Vikings claim punter Matt

Wile off waivers UPDATE: The Vikings have Stefon Diggs Jersey , in fact, released Ryan Quigley to make room for Matt Wile on the roster.Original story follows:Throughout the preseason, one of the players on the Minnesota Vikings roster that was thought to be the safest was punter Ryan Quigley. The team brought in no competition for him during the offseason or the preseason, and there weren’t any indications that the team was looking to replace him.Until now, apparently.Field Yates of ESPN is reporting that the Vikings have claimed punter Matt Wile off of the waiver wire. Wile spent this preseason punting for the Pittsburgh Steelers.Wile played his college ball at the University of Michigan, and has bounced around a bit since graduating in 2014. He has spent time with the Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals, and Atlanta Falcons in his career. He has appeared in four NFL games Authentic Kyle Rudolph Jersey , all in 2016. He appeared in one game for the Falcons and three for the Cardinals that season.In those four games, he punted 12 times, with a net average of 43.0 yards. He had one punt blocked, and dropped two punts inside the 20 yard line. Three of his punts were fair caught, and seven were returned for an average of just over five yards/return.Quigley had a decent season for the Vikings in 2017, going the entire regular season without registering a touchback. However, he had one of the lowest net yardage figures in the league, with his 39.2 yard net average placing him at 29th in the NFL.So, it appears that the Minnesota Vikings are going to have a new punter. What do you think of that Youth Xavier Rhodes Jersey , ladies and gentlemen? This isn’t related to the National Football League or the Minnesota Vikings, but it is a big story for the sports fans of the state of Minnesota and the Minnesota Twins, and I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that we have a lot of those here as well.On Friday, Twins’ first baseman/catcher Joe Mauer officially announced his retirement, something that we kind of knew was coming following the Twins’ final game of this season. He made it official in a letter that he sent out earlier today.The Twins made Mauer the #1 overall pick in the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft after an outstanding two-sport career at Cretin-Derham Hall High School. He had originally committed to play college football for Bobby Bowden at Florida State, but ultimately decided that baseball was his calling instead. There were points in his career with the Twins that people joked that he might be the best quarterback in the stateof Minnesota. . .and, given the state of the Vikings’ quarterback depth chart in some of those years, they may have been right.For most of his career in Minnesota, Mauer was an outstanding offensive player. as he led the American League in batting average three times , becoming the first catcher ever to win three batting titles, and won the A.L. Most Valuable Player Award in 2009. He finished his career with a .306 batting average, 143 career home runs, and 923 runs batted in. He also finished his career with 2,123 hits, the fourth-highest total in Twins history.Congratulations to Joe Mauer on an outstanding career, and basically getting to live a dream that I’m guessing a lot of us had growing up. There’s only one real way you can sum it up.
