The Patriots know nothing about it, so they say.
And yes, Vinatieri has a new agent. Who according to the CBA rules, as a new agent for Adam, can't represent Vinatieri for 3 or 4 days.
on sportscenter they had "breaking news" that terms had been agreed to in principle, and john clayton reported that a deal could be done as soon as tonight. he then stated how vanderjact has got interrest with miami and that patriots and green bay could be leaning towards his services. he talked about adam like it was a done deal with the colts.
this still gives the pats an opportunity to ante up, although it will only cement brady and belichicks carreer if they let him go and can win one w/o him. patriots would have to swallow alot of pride and business philosophy to over pay for none other than a kicker.
