Since he'll be a FA at season's end, this claim being a move for the future only works if we sign him to a longer contract during the rest of the season.
Once the season ends, he's a FA and any team can sign him.
So, he'll have to get some playing time in front of AV in order to see if he's worthy of resigning, unless the Colts just want to evaluate him in practice, which I doubt.
I assume he'll play, and Vinny will sit.
Vinny might be allowed to try to get his 600th FG, but I also assume Reich wants the best chance to win games.
Of course. Had Luck not retired or had it not ended the way it did with him being booed, with no formal retirement ceremony, they probably would have asked for or allowed Vinatieri to retire early this season. After the Luck fiasco, they were walking on eggshells and didn't want to take another hit, didn't want kick another Colt legend, a ring of honor player to the curb several weeks later.
If we don’t draft a QB that just means that the ones ballard wanted went before us and he isn’t going to reach for a QB. There is no way they don’t unless Luck comes back and if he does I still think they do because luck would only have 2 years left and I bet that would be the agreement.
