After losing Punter Jeff Locke to the Indianapolis Colts, the Vikings are in need of a punter and, according to reporter Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, East Carolina Punter Worth Gregory is set to visit with the team.

For his career, Gregory played three seasons at East Carolina and had 160 total punts for a career average of 42.0 yards per punt. Last season, Gregory finished with 51 punts for an average of 42.3 yards per punt including a season-long of 65 yards. Gregory's longest career punt was a booming 73-yard punt during the 2015 season.

I know it hasn't been said on here yet, but we did work out the #1 projected Kicker and Groza Award Winner (Nation's Best Kicker), ASU's Zane Gonzalez, after his pro-day.

regarding choosing a kick returner...

Spielman: “Both of them [2017 draft picks Rodney Adams and Stacy Coley] are very explosive athletes, have excellent speed. We watch all their returns and we even went back if Coley didn’t return any in 2016, we go back to 2014, 2015. Both have explosive playmaking ability as kickoff returners.’’

Adams, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds at last month’s NFL scouting combine, said the keys to being a good returner have been “my speed, my vision to read blocks, read holes.” Coley said he’s “really comfortable with returning kicks.’’

“I’m just so thankful and honored that the Vikings took a chance on me and you won’t regret it,’’ Coley said.

Spielman took great pride in the fact he was able to make enough deals to draft a total of 11 players in seven rounds. But even with all of those picks, he did not take a kicker or a punter.

The Vikings currently have two kickers (Kai Forbath and Marshall Koehn) and two punters (Ryan Quigley and Taylor Symmank) on their roster. Forbath, entering his seventh NFL season, finished last year as the team’s kicker. Quigley, who has punted for the Jets and Cardinals in four seasons, will battle Symmank, who punted at Texas Tech and impressed in the Vikings’ rookie camp last spring.

The one thing all four of these guys have in common? All were signed as free agents by the Vikings.
