Even at 45-years-old, Adam Vinatieri isn't thinking about retirement.
Playing in 2018 gives the 45-year-old kicker a chance to break the NFL's all-time scoring record, a mark now held by Hall of Famer Morten Andersen (2,544 points).More news: Merged with Palaniswami faction on PM advice: OP
Indianapolis could lose another free agent who's likely Canton-bound, 34-year-old RB Frank Gore, but Vinatieri appears set to finish his remarkable career that spans four different USA presidents, five Super Bowls, seven head coaches and 30 postseason games, as a member of the Colts.
Vinatieri pegged 29 of his 34 field goal attempts in 2017.More news: Braehmer pulls out of Super Series semi-final
After starting his National Football League career with the New England Patriots and playing there for 10 seasons, Vinatieri has been with the Colts the past 12 seasons. He sits second all-time at 2,487 and should surpass Andersen's record by the midpoint of next season.
Indianapolis has a lot of moving parts involved with their roster this off-season, so having security at the kicker position for at least another season is nothing but positive news. And with a new head coach and hopefully getting Andrew Luck back to win some games, Vinatieri could go out as a victor too.More news: PNB fraud: ED raids shell firms; IT attaches Rs 145cr assets
