Default Adam Vinatieri a Colt?

That's the word I'm hearing around Boston.

I should add, Jesus Christ.

Default Re: Adam Vinatieri a Colt

source? lol i had a feeling this might happen when they didnt shell out mega bucks for james. its probably worth an extra million a year to ditch vanderjact (next stop boston?) and twist the knife in the patriots back. this would probably be a great career move for vinatieri to move indoors, add an extra 5 yds or so to his kicks and not have the weather to deal with. little do the colts know is they wont have that belichick/brady pixie dust to sprinkle on his foot before every critical kick.

what ive been hearing on sirius is that the pats are just letting him shop around to set the market and then the pats will pretty much match the highest offer in hopes that its not more than it would be to franchise him and they save a few bucks. id be offended. pretty risky to not just deal with him up front and hope for a "were gonna win the next 5 championships" discount.

i think he goes back to the pats but it would definitely be a better story if he goes to indy. personally, if hes ever gonna win it again, id rather see him win another ring with indy, rather than with the pats. wouldnt that be funny seeing vinatieri kicking a game winning kick in foxboro for someone other than the pats?

The original source was WEEI Sports, but the rumor is all around Boston. However, I just heard that a "high ranking Colt official" says the report is "extremely inaccurate", but that they are in negotiations with Vinatieri, and won't have anything to say tonight. 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.

very interesting

Eh, not much difference here. The best kicker gets replaced by the second best kicker.

It will be interesting to see where Vanderjagt ends up...and, NO, the Steelers will not be signing him!

Vinatieri kicking in a dome. I'm sure he's happy about that.
