INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Kicker Adam Vinatieri, the NFL’s oldest player, has agreed to terms to remain with the Indianapolis Colts.
The team announced the agreement with the 43-year-old four-time Super Bowl champion on Tuesday, one day before NFL free agency begins.
Vinatieri has been with the Colts for 10 seasons, including the 2006 NFL championship season. He also won three titles with the Patriots before joining Indianapolis as a free agent.
He holds career postseason records for points scored (234), field goals (56) and extra points (66).
Colts general manager Ryan Grigson calls Vinatieri “a future Hall of Famer” and praises the kicker for “his hard work, consistency and professionalism.”
Vinatieri is one of only three kickers with 500 career field goals. He ranks third in total points as the NFL’s active leader and sixth in regular-season games played.
