Adam Vinatieri thinks he has a few years left in him

Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri’s 41, and about to be a free agent. And he’s not thinking at all of retiring.

Vinatieri told ESPN’s Adam Schefter he wants to kick for “two or three more years.”

 

I don’t think that’s out of my limits,” Vinatieri said.

The venerable kicker was solid for the Colts this year, making 35-of-40 field goal attempts.

He still has plenty of leg strength, as he was 4-of-6 from 50 yards or longer, and 15-of-17 on kicks from 40 to 49 yards.

While he said he’d “love to re-sign with the Colts, he’s also willing to test the market.

    I hope Adam does kick in the league for a few more seasons. At his age though, I would think he’s best suited for a team that plays in a dome.

    Kickers who take care of themselves can kick into their 50′s.

    Adam burst onto the scene in New Orleans in the SB. Why not finish his career there?

    I would not be shocked to see him in Arizona next year – even as Jay Feely had a good season. I’m sure Bruce Arians could at least give AV a reason to visit Glendale.

    With no rule changes regarding the extra point, in 5 years, he could become the league’s all-time leading scorer. I think that would be fitting.

    It’ll be a few more years before he is ready to kick the bucket.
