Walsh is 12 of 16 on field goals, which places him 24th in the league in percentage. He also has missed three extra points.
Not only is Walsh having a poor season for Minnesota, but fans still have a negative feeling towards him over the 27-yard kick he missed last season in the playoffs that would have eliminated Seattle. Between last season and this, Minnesota would likely prefer to move on from Walsh … if they could find a better replacement for him.
