Adam Vinatieri signs one-year deal with Indianapolis Colts

Adam Vinatieri Reportedly Plans to Return for 23rd NFL Season

The Colts have made it official with Adam Vinatieri.

Financial details were not immediately available, though the deal is believed to be in the neighborhood of last season's $3 million salary.

He's averaged 122.5 points over the past six seasons while making 87.8 percent of his field-goal attempts. Vinatieri turns 46 on December 28.

He likes the moves Ballard has made during his first year on the job, and he especially likes the decision to hire former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich as the head coach after Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels backed out of a verbal agreement. "By no means (a) one year (contract) means I'm only planning on playing one more year. So the process was pretty easy". And with a new head coach and hopefully getting Andrew Luck back to win some games, Vinatieri could go out as a victor too.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Vinatieri has earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors an NFL-record 17 times.

But his legacy runs much deeper. Vinatieri was a member of the Colts Super Bowl XLI championship team. He missed out on $500,000 in each of the past two seasons after failing to make 90 percent of his field goal attempts. He rekindled those images in December when he made a long extra point to help force overtime in a blizzard at Buffalo. He told reporters late last season that he planned to advance into his 23rd National Football League campaign.

More indicative of Vinatieri's longevity - during his rookie year with New England (1996), Reich was a divisional rival as a quarterback with the Jets. He has remained a highly dependable player that still possesses the strong desire to continue to play for a 23rd season in the league.

Vinatieri's return puts him in position to become the NFL's all-time leader in points scored and field goals.

If he sticks around a few more years, as he suggested he might, Vinatieri won't just be chasing Anderson and Andersen.

The points record is one Vinatieri has been well aware of. "I guess I'll take these one year at a time and see where it ends up". He could accomplish this feat around the halfway mark of this upcoming season. "I'm not putting anything out of reach".
