Blair Walsh's time in Minnesota might be nearing an end. According to NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo, the Vikings are bringing in kickers for workouts this week – and specifically, head coach Mike Zimmer told KFAN that it'll happen on Tuesday.

Walsh has been a under a microscope since missing a 27-yard field goal that would have kept the Vikings' 2015 playoff season alive, and this season he's missed four field goals and and NFL-high three extra points – including one in Sunday's overtime loss to Detroit.

During his Monday press conference, head coach Mike Zimmer was asked if Walsh can still be a successful kicker.

"I think Blair can be a successful kicker, yes," Zimmer said.

If the Vikings cut Walsh they'll still owe him the rest of his 2016 money and face a $1.6 million salary cap hit next season, according to The Daily Norseman.
