FOXBORO (CBS) – Former New England Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri will be in the house Sunday with the Colts. Obviously, his season is not going as well he wanted to but the Super Bowl hero still keeps a positive head. He is also positive about his time here in Foxboro.
“Listen, the 10 great years in New England will be a very big part in my life forever, until the day I die. I have three beautiful [Super Bowl] rings and a lot of great memories. Even though my loyalty is to my team now, I will always have a special place in my heart for the New England Patriots and that franchise, [Owner] Mr. [Robert] Kraft and his family. That goes without saying. 10 years down the road, when I’m retired, I’ll be looking forward to the [Super Bowl] reunions.”
Vinatieri has three rings win the Patriots and a fourth with the Colts. He was took off for Indy and the Pats added Stephen Gostkowski. Vinatieri says he doesn’t talk to Gostkowski much but he realizes his worth.
“You couldn’t have asked for a better kicker to come in and do what he’s done,” Vinatieri said. “He has a big leg and he’s a very solid guy, especially last year when he went through the injury and bounced back. I have all the respect in the world for him.”
