The 41-year-old has signed a new two-year deal with the Colts according to league sources who told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, while the official announcement regarding the renewal was made on their Twitter page.
Vinatieri made 87.5 percent of his field goals last season, (35-of-40), with 15 of those coming from between 40-49 yards and four from at least 50 yards.
The veteran kicker became the seventh player in NFL history to score at least 2000 points in their career last season, and also has 16 seasons with at least 100 points, all of which have earned him a new deal as he continues to instil confidence in management that he has an integral role to play moving forward.
A two-time Pro Bowler, Vinatieri helped the New England Patriots win three Super Bowls earlier in his career, but he will now look forward to extending his stay with the Colts and helping them to success next season.
