Adam Vinatieri sounds like he plans to retire

Adam Vinatieri

After another brutal kicking day, Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri strongly hinted that he may have played his final game.

The 46-year-old kicker continued his bad start to the 2019 season by missing two more extra points in the Colts’ 19-17 win over Tennessee. After the game, Vinatieri told a reporter that he’d “hear from me tomorrow” despite the fact that he would not typically be available to the media.

Vinatieri’s words were taken by many as a sign that he was going to opt to retire, though it remains speculative at this point.

Vinatieri has had an incredibly accomplished career and will always be remembered for his Super Bowl-winning exploits with the New England Patriots. He has kicked in the NFL since 1996 and has made 84.3 percent of his career field goals in the regular season.

Vinatieri’s kicking issues have become a huge hindrance to the Colts, and he may recognize that it’s simply time to move on for everyone’s own good.
