A report has surfaced that one of the NFL’s all-time great kickers reached out to the team about such an arrangement, but was rebuffed.John Carney, who is the fifth-leading scorer in the history of the National Football League and one of the few players to play in the NFL in four different decades, told the Vikings that he would be willing to serve as the team’s part-time kicking coach Danielle Hunter Jersey , according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.Carney’s career began back in 1988, and he played for seven NFL teams over the course of a career that came to an end in 2010. He has scored 2,062 career points. He converted 82.4% of his field goals over the course of his career.According to the article from Tomasson, Carney does have some familiarity with the Vikings Linval Joseph Jersey , as he has worked with punter Matt Wile on both his punting skills and his holding skills. However, it doesn’t look as though Carney is going to get more familiar with the team by becoming part of the coaching staff, and that’s unfortunate, to say the least.Hopefully the Vikings can find someone with Carney’s credentials to handle the job going forward.
