Colts, Vinatieri agree to one-year deal

Colts, Vinatieri agree to one-year deal

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the team and its enduring veteran kicker reached agreement on a one-year deal, according to a source informed of the situation.

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.

The Colts have made it official with Adam Vinatieri. Adam Schefter with ESPN and Stephen Holder with our media partners at the IndyStar were the first to confirm the news. He sits second all-time at 2,487 and should surpass Andersen's record by the midpoint of next season. He played in four Super Bowls with the Patriots, winning three, kicking late game-winning field goals in two, and scoring the winning points in the third. He went 29-of-34 on field-goal attempts and 22-of-24 on extra-point attempts in 2017. Two of those missed field goals came in blizzard conditions in Buffalo, though.

He made his National Football League debut on September 1, 1996, in a 24-10 Dolphins win over the Patriots.
