Walsh or Locke on kickoffs? 

July, 1, 2013
There were some moving parts for the Minnesota Vikings' special teams core this offseason, as return man extraordinaire was dealt to the Seattle Seahawks and P Chris Kluwe was released. One constant from 2012 to 2013 is rising second-year kicker Blair Walsh. Walsh was one of the league leaders in kickoff distance and touchback percentage (it helps to play half of one's games in a dome), but the team does have another option for kickoffs this upcoming season in rookie P Jeff Locke.
