INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kicker Adam Vinatieri has signed a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts.
General manager Chris Ballard announced Friday the two sides had agreed to terms on a new deal.
Vinatieri made it official with his signature Monday, then told reporters he was glad the process went smoothly and ended early.
Sports fans love dynasties. And hate them, too.
That a team could be so dominant for a long period as the New England Patriots have been should be admirable. Their detractors point to scandals such as "Spygate" and the deflated footballs saga. Their supporters focus on Tom Brady's brilliance and a resilience that all great teams share.
Regardless, the facts are the Patriots are in their ninth Super Bowl since 2001 and have won five.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Vinatieri will still be the NFL's oldest active player next season.

Andrew Luck scrambled out of bounds with a few seconds left, and Colts coach Frank Reich sent one of the most reliable kickers in NFL history out to attempt a 23-yard chip-shot field goal.
Adam Vinatieri doinked it off the left upright .
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Vinatieri sits at one end of the Indianapolis Colts' locker room, his expanding white beard nearly a perfect match to his helmet and jersey.
He doesn't listen to the hip-hop music in the background, doesn't pretend to understand the shiny, new electronic gadgets everyone else plays with and certainly doesn't pay much attention to the trends outside these walls. Yet in Vinatieri's mind, this is still the perfect spot.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Miami Dolphins thought they had solved their road woes.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck was at his best when it mattered most for the Indianapolis Colts.
Including some fancy footwork at a big moment.

Vinatieri's 25-yarder at the end of the second quarter in Indianapolis' 42-28 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday will surely be one he never forgets.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts appear to have a potent running game, an offensive line that can protect and a record-setting kicker.

Luck threw his third touchdown pass of the game to break a tie with 5:28 to go, Adam Vinatieri set the career scoring mark and the Colts beat the Oakland Raiders 42-28 on Sunday to win in back-to-back weeks for the first time in three years.
