  Vikings | Minnesota confident in Blair Walsh    Wed Mar 30, 12:23 AM

The Minnesota Vikings are confident in PK Blair Walsh despite a devastating missed chip-shot 27-yard field goal in the playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks. 'I pretty much move on, but I'm going to try to make sure that he has success as much as possible,' head coach Mike Zimmer said. 'You're always as good as your last kick, right? So we want to make sure that a lot of his kicks are good kicks now.'

Footballguys view: Zimmer backing Walsh is the right thing to do, but Walsh had a rough summer last year and he might be prone to a loss of confidence. The Vikings shouldn't be too patient with Walsh if he struggles early in the regular season.

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker will receive the franchise tag if a new deal is not reached, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome, who said discussions on a new deal have been held.

Footballguys view: The cap is going up and Tucker is one of the best in the business, so it makes sense to pay him top market rate without having to commit long term in case he loses his accuracy, which does happen inexplicably at times at a position with a small margin of error.
