Colts K Adam Vinatieri‘s future in Indianapolis has been in question throughout the season, but he says he hasn’t thought about it.
“That’s way above my pay grade,” Vinatieri said, via the Indianapolis Star. “I don’t think about that stuff. My only thing is to come in and check out the film, see what we can do better and move on. Obviously we’re all our own biggest critics. Anytime it’s not perfect, you want to make it perfect. But I don’t worry about the decisions that are being made that I can’t control one way or the other.”
