The Indianapolis Colts today agreed to terms with kicker Adam Vinatieri on a contract extension.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Vinatieri receives a two-year deal worth $6 million and has another $1 million available in incentives.
“We are thrilled to retain Adam as a member of the Colts family,” said Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson. “Adam continues to play at the highest level year in and year out and his hard work, consistency and professionalism are a credit to him being the longest tenured active player in the NFL. Adam has won multiple Super Bowls and is a future Hall of Famer. We look forward to continuing to utilize his championship-pedigree and leadership in our program.”
Vinatieri, 43, played out his two-year, $5 million contract that he signed with the Colts back in 2014 and was set to be an unrestricted free agent.
In 2015, he appeared in all 16 games and converted 25 of 27 (92.6 percent) field goal attempts to go along with 32 of 35 extra point attempts (91.4 percent). Pro Football Focus rated Vinatieri as the No. 24 overall kicker out of 60 qualifiers.
