Adam Vinatieri hasn’t made a decision about continuing to play

Adam Vinatieri ended the 2019 season on injured reserve because of a knee injury that required surgery and it remains unknown if the veteran kicker plans to play again.

That was the word from Colts head coach Frank Reich during a Tuesday conference call. Reich said he has not spoken to Vinatieri in some time, but plans to have a conversation about his future once he’s further along in the rehab process.

“[We plan] to have a sitdown with Adam and see where he’s at once he’s a little further along in that process,” Reich said, via the Indianapolis Star.

Vinatieri is not under contract, so the Colts would have to make a call on re-signing the NFL’s all-time leading scorer if he does want to return. Vinatieri was 17-of-25 on field goals and 22-of-28 extra points before being shut down last year.

Chase McLaughlin made 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 extra point attempts in four games with the Colts and is currently the only kicker on the roster.

  1. Come on , your leg is worse than Manning’s noodle arm in his last season. Walk away please.

  2. “Adam Vinatieri hasn’t made a decision about continuing to play”

    Adam Vinatieri is an all-time great kicker. But considering his age and the number of big kicks he’s missed the last couple of years, I wouldn’t be too surprised if the decision is made for him, even if he wants to continue playing.

  3. Adam should sign with New England and also have the Patriots keep Folk. Let Adam kick in game one and then gracefully retire as a Patriot.

  4. He should exit while he has his health. It is my understanding that senior citizens are particularly susceptible to covid-19.
