Looks like there might be some unfinished business here.
During Friday night’s preseason contest between Seattle and Minnesota, Seahawks kicker Blair Walsh made a pair of 52-yard field goals and made sure to stare down the Vikings bench each time.

“I simply was just responding to getting taunted,” Walsh said. “I didn’t say anything. When you’ve got guys who were your teammates for five years yelling at you when you’re trying to kick, it’s just odd. And I hope they were in jest. And I hope they didn’t mean it because I didn’t mean anything with mine, but it was definitely not out of nowhere.”
The two 52-yard kicks came after Walsh had missed a 53-yarder in the first half.
Walsh was with Minnesota for five seasons before he was released after last season. The former All-Pro kicker holds the record for most 50-yard field goals made (10) in a season, which he set back in 2012. He was let go last year after he struggled with the NFL’s new extended extra-point.
Walsh was originally drafted in the sixth round back in 2012 out of Georgia.
