On Monday, the Vikings announced that they released veteran kicker Kai Forbath and that Carlson will be the starter entering his rookie season. The former Auburn kicker was selected by Minnesota in the fifth round of the 2018 Football Draft.
Two days after missing a 41-yard goal attempt against the Jacksonville Jaguars, kicker Kai Forbath learned his fate. "We just figured it was getting close to the last couple of preseason games," coach Mike Zimmer said. "Kai did a great job while he was here. He's a great kid. We just decided to go with Daniel."
Carlson, the Vikings' fifth-round pick of the 2018 draft, converted an extra point against the Jaguars, and went 2 of 2 on field goal attempts, including a 57-yard effort, the previous week against the Denver Broncos.
"I think he's a really good guy and a great locker room guy," Vikings receiver Adam Thielen said regarding Carlson. "He's done a great job in these preseason games. Now he should have the confidence to go out there and perform well now that he's the guy."
Now Carlson, the Auburn record holder and SEC's all-time leading scorer, begins in earnest his role as Vikings kicker that comes with an infamous history and Super Bowl expectations. The 23-year-old said he's not going to ignore pressure that comes with a team that made the NFC Championship Game last season.Daniel Carlson Jersey .
"Definitely embrace," Carlson said. "I think you want to be on a winning team. I came into a situation where, with what they did last season, I'm just going to take that and run with it. Do my job one day at a time and hopefully be a part of that success. As a kicker, I hope I get lots of extra points. When we get some big field goals, I'll be ready."

Three months ago, a hundred days after the oath, one afternoon after school, the
school radio came Hackberry song: "When you are still still fantasy / your
