“If they’re wanting, I can’t imagine (I’d) not keep playing, you know?” Vinatieri said, via Joel A. Erickson, Indianapolis Star. “I haven’t made the decision yet. I’ll spend a week or two and just kind of see where we’re at.”
Vinatieri is a free agent, and the oldest player in the league. He’s also the highest-scoring player in the history of the game, having passed Morten Andersen this year. As the story said, it’s not as if he’s not still getting it done, as he hit 23-of-27 field goals this year, an 85.2 percent mark that’s over his career average (84.3). He also made four field goals from 50 yards or longer, though he’s been dealing with some injuries over the second half of the season. He missed two kicks in the snow Saturday, which gave him pause, and that’s why he wants some time to think.
