The Packers had a kicking competition this summer

Mason Crosby is on the 53-man roster that the team unveiled on Sunday afternoon and Sam Ficken is headed for the waiver wire. Ficken hit all six kicks he tried during the preseason and could draw some interest around the league.As previously reported , the Packers opted to cut DeShone Kizer and they also waived Manny Wilkins, which leaves Tim Boyle as the only quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers.They also waived or released safeties Tray Matthews and Natrell Jamerson; cornerbacks Nydair Rouse, Jocquez Kalili, Jackson Porter and Kabion Ento; linebackers Brady Sheldon, Curtis Bolton, James Folston, Randy Ramsey and Markus Jones; offensive linemen Anthony Coyle , Gerhard de Beer, Dejon Allen, Yosh Nijman and Adam Pankey; tight ends Pharaoh McKever and Evan Baylis; wide receivers Teo Redding, Malik Taylor, J’Mon Moore and Allen Lazard; fullbacks Tommy Bohanon and Malcolm Johnson; running backs Tra Carson and Keith Ford.Wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown has been placed on injured reserve and won’t return this season. Safety Ibraheim Campbell and linebacker Greg Roberts have been placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. Kaare Vedvik is good enough to make an NFL roster. But maybe not the roster Justin Tucker and Sam Koch are on.Vedvik, the Ravens’ Norwegian backup kicker and punter, had another solid preseason outing on Thursday night Zach Brown Jersey , went 4-for-4 on field goals in last night’s preseason opener, with a long of 55 yards. He also had two punts, one of which went 58 yards and the other 53 yards.That continues a string of impressive preseason performances for Vedvik, who also looked very good last preseason as both a kicker and a punter.The problem for Vedvik is that the Ravens are happy with Tucker as their kicker and Koch with their punter. Last year he appeared to have a good chance of getting picked up by some team after his strong preseason in Baltimore, but he suffered a head injury when he was assaulted in Baltimore and was unable to play.A rookie who can both kick and punt, Vedvik grew up playing soccer in Norway but learned about American football and decided to see if he could earn a college scholarship with his powerful kicking leg. He did, at Marshall Devin Bush Jersey , and then got his shot in the NFL. Ravens coach John Harbaugh has said he expects to trade Vedvik, and given the way he has kicked, it’s easy to picture some team giving up a draft pick to acquire him.
