The Minnesota Vikings should’ve a better shot at defeating the Tampa Bay Bucs on Sunday, but kicker Dan Bailey’s complete unraveling left some 10 points off the board because of his misses.
Bailey missed three field goals and an extra point in the 26-14 loss in Tampa Bay.
The Vikings may have a replacement.
Donald De La Haye, a former kickoff specialist at the University of Central Florida (UCF), wrote on his Instagram story: “@Vikings I will literally fly to Minnesota tomorrow if y’all need me.”
De La Haye was told by the NCAA to delete or demonetize his Youtube channel, where he posts videos of football skits and trick shots. He had to do so in order to stay eligible as the NCAA forbids student-athletes from profiting off their athletic ability while under scholarship. De La Haye maintained his channel that he started when he was a teenager at the cost of his scholarship and college football career.
He eventually got his shot at professional football when the Canadian Football League Toronto Argonauts signed him in May 2019.
