Adam Vinatieri wants to kick at least a couple more years
Adam Vinatieri recently finished his 20th season in the NFL and he’s not planning on stopping any time soon.
Vinatieri said during a visit with Mike Florio on PFT Live from Radio Row in San Francisco last week that he didn’t want to put a timetable on how much longer he’ll remain in the NFL, but it looks like he’s looking for at least two more seasons.
“Not only a season, but Lord willing, a couple of years,” Vinatieri said, via the Indianapolis Star. “There will come a time when it’s over for me. I don’t think that time is yet. I enjoy playing. I enjoy doing my thing.”
On PFT Live, Vinatieri said that he only wanted to keep playing if he’s going to be helping his team win games. Vinatieri was 25-of-27 on field goals in 2015 and hit 32-of-35 extra points.
He did admit to having an eye on Morten Andersen’s record for points in the NFL, however, and the fact that he’s 291 points away from tying the mark doesn’t seem to hurt his motivation to continue kicking. He’s set to be a free agent, although the Colts have made it clear they want Vinatieri back.
