Vikings | Agent Wants to Know Elling's Status

Sun, 28 Aug 2005 20:37:57 -0700

The Star Tribune reports agent Frank Murtha wants to know PK Aaron Elling's (hip) status with the Minnesota Vikings and he is hoping to talk to them Monday, Aug. 29, to figure it out. Murtha said he requested a copy of the MRI done on Elling's right hip. As noted, Elling was unable to play in Friday night's preseason victory over San Diego after suffering what has been termed a "little strain" of his hip in pregame warmups. Elling's competition for the place kicking job, PK Paul Edinger, made four field goals. Murtha wants to know if that performance was enough to win Edinger the job. If that's the case, and assuming Elling's injury isn't serious, Murtha would like to have an opportunity to shop his client's services around the NFL while some teams still are looking for a kicker.

Vikings | Elling has Lead in Kickoff Battle

Tue, 02 Aug 2005 06:03:00 -0700

Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings PK Aaron Elling has the early lead over PK Paul Edinger to be the team's place kicker. At practice Monday, August 1, Elling easily kicked a 51-yard field and then blasted the ensuing kickoff 4 yards into the end zone. Edinger also had a solid showing nailing a 48-yard field goal but his kickoff sailed only to the 10. Both Elling and Edinger were humbled in the afternoon practice, with each badly hooking a field-goal attempt of less than 40 yards. Fortunately for them, head coach Mike Tice addressed reporters only after their good session. "Both kickers hit their balls very, very well," Tice said. "I'm pleased with the competition. Aaron seems to have a stronger leg, and we knew that going in, as it pertains to kickoffs. Both of them hit their field goals very, very solidly."

Vikings | Battle at Place Kicker Developing

Thu, 02 Jun 2005 07:51:12 -0700

Don Seeholzer, of the Pioneer Press, reports the battle for the Minnesota Vikings place kicker job is underway. The battle does not appear it will be a cutthroat competition. Incumbent PK Aaron Elling and challenger PK Paul Edinger spent their first day together on the practice field engaged in congenial conversation. After signing Edinger, the Vikings made it a point to say the job is Elling's to lose, but the position is still very much up for grabs. "Probably the better field-goal kicker is going to have the better chance," special teams coordinator Rusty Tillman said. "On the other hand, field position is such an important thing; the kickoff is a big factor, too. But I think probably the first thing you look for in a kicker is the consistency making field goals." Edinger is the better field goal kicker, but Elling is the better kickoff guy.

Vikings | Elling's Job to Lose

Thu, 26 May 2005 06:01:54 -0700

Don Seeholzer, of the Pioneer Press, reports the Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice said despite the signing of PK Paul Edinger it is PK Aaron Elling's job to lose. "Aaron is our kicker unless somebody beats him out," Tice said. "If Edinger has a weakness, besides the fact he had an off year last year, it's that he's not a great kickoff guy. Edinger needs to work on his kickoffs, and Aaron needs to work on his field-goal accuracy. It will be quite a competition."
