Adam Vinatieri turned 46 a few weeks ago, but he isn’t ready to hang it up just yet.
The legendary kicker has agreed to a deal to return to the Colts, the team said Friday. ESPN previously reported it was a one-year contract, teeing Vinatieri up for a 24th NFL season.
We have agreed to terms on a contract extension with the 🐐!

Vinatieri has made more field goals (582) and scored more points (2,600) than any player in NFL history, and only Tom Brady has appeared in more playoff games than his 32.
He made 23 of 27 field goal attempts for Indianapolis in 2018, with a long of 54, and converted 44 of 47 extra-point tries.
Vinatieri kicked at South Dakota State before signing with the Patriots in 1996 as an undrafted free agent. He spent 10 years with New England, winning three Super Bowl titles, before jumping to the Colts in 2006 and helping them win it all that season.
