#3 – Adam Vinatieri
Like most NFL players, there is no job security for kickers. It may be the most overlooked position in football given the pressure they face every Sunday. But when a kicker proves to be consistent, he can play for over two decades.
That’s exactly what Adam Vinatieri has done. The future Hall of Famer intends to return for a 23rd season in 2018.
Despite turning 45-years-old this past December, the four-time Super Bowl winner is still one of the best kickers in the game.
Vinatieri connected on 85.3 percent of his field goal attempts in 2017 and made 5-of-6 field goals from 50-plus yards. Playing inside at Lucas Oil Stadium likely helps boost Vinatieri’s numbers, but that surely doesn’t mean he isn’t one of the best kickers on the open market.
