...“[We plan] to have a sitdown with Adam and see where he’s at once he’s a little further along in that process,” Reich said, via the Indianapolis Star.

Vinatieri is not under contract, so the Colts would have to make a call on re-signing the NFL’s all-time leading scorer if he does want to return...

Maybe they're sitting down with him to discuss a potential coaching position.

Exactly.   There should be no need for a discussion.  AV should not even want to come back and he certainly shouldn't put the Colts in a position where they feel they owe it to him.   He cashed in all his IOU's last season.   I'll be pretty bummed if they bring AV back.   Don't let Chase go.  The kid is good.   On XP's, he was 79/79 in college and is 26/26 in the NFL.   From 50+ he was 3/3.   Colts would be foolish to let him go and keep an over the hill lesser kicker.

just a thought, but we could carry both if we wanted. Give AV the chance to redeem himself, if he doesn't, cut him with a kicker on the roster.

It's hard moving on from a legend, but I think it's time for Adam to transition into some other role.

Might as well since we’re carrying $40M+ in QBs. What’s another $5M in kickers?

It is kinda crazy to think they would keep 2. But.  Look at how many teams struggled to find a kicker last yr and over the past few. They have a guy like Chase which I like BTW and then the floor drops out and he gets cut.  Some costing playoff wins.

 

I may be mistaken but doesn't AV have a couple of records in sight this yr?  Not a reason to keep him, but I would rather he got them here than somewhere else.

 

Again  not saying keep him, I'm just being open minded

i am in the same thought actually. 

besides, we now have an extra man we can carry. 54 vs 53. it wouldn't be terrible for that to be an extra kicker. If Vinny stinks it up again, we simply move on, bring someone else up from the PS like we would any other position.

I think it would.  Especially a 47 year old kicker.  I, in no way, hope Ballard keeps 2 kickers on the roster.  I'd love to see AV in a coaching role, but not taking up a roster spot.

I don't hope he does either. I'm just saying it is one plausible option. I personally think AV needs to hang them up. he's done enough and is going to be the GOAT kicker for decades to come if not forever. no one else is even close to his stats and records.

Time to move on.  I'm not buying the whole injury excuse.  AV was horrible in week 1.  If injury really caused this terrible season than it was an injury that existed before the season even started.  

 

Give him a ceremonial one day contract, announce his retirement and add him to the ring.  

 

We moved on from a HOF QB because it was the best thing long term for the team, we can move on from a HOF kicker because it's the best thing for the team.  

I agree. Moving on from Manning was way harder bc he was drafted as a Colt. AV shouldn't be a question considering he came over from the Patriots.

I'm not advocating for keeping him - it's a tough decision for the FO I'm sure. But I'm thinking we won't be in nearly as many 1-score games this coming season. If that is true, having Vinny around won't be nearly as potentially detrimental as it was last season.

He has been a Colt longer than he has been a Patriot.

They are negotiating a 2-game contract for him to get to FG 600 and retire his jersey.

 

j/k :)

More super bowls wins with Patriots, more records with Colts... * it could be a wash but Manning at that point of his career was only a colt

The only thing the Colts should be discussing with AV is his Ring of Honor ceremony.

It’s time, Vinny.  In fact, it’s past time.  You’ve had one of the best careers of anybody who ever used their leg and foot to play football.  But that time comes for everybody eventually — and it came for you a couple years ago.  Moving on to something may or may not be best for you, but it’s clearly best for your team.

This should not be a tough decision for the front office.  You have a superior kicker on the roster.   

We could be in just as many 1-score games, no one knows.   Pick the better kicker.    We've already did him a solid by keeping him this long.

Lol.  What makes you think it'd only take him two games to get to 600 based on last season....

Just cut him and move on.  I know Bellichick would have been made the move.

Not knowing the true nature of the medical aspects of last year, I simply don't have enough info to have an opinion either way. I'll trust the FO on this one however it shakes out. My gut says he's done though. That along with a dollar might get you a soda or coffee in some places.

Sitdown: 

CB: So Vinny... how do you feel about coaching Chase?

AV: Sweet, so you want me to mentor him during the season? Wait, you are keeping 2 kickers on the roster?

I only know as much as you.    But with Chase sitting there and AV being 47 years old, the choice seems pretty easy.

I agree. Also, fixed the text a bit, to match what my dad always said.

I remember the old saying (before my time) 

Shave and a haircut, 6 bits. (which was 6 quarters)

 

 Then at the start of my time...

Shave and a haircut, 6 bucks.

 

Today it's more like...

Shave and a haircut, 60 bucks

Some of the barbershops around here will "give" you a beer with that shave and haircut for 60 bucks!

That's where my bet would be too. Wish we knew more about the injury...

If there is a way to keep AV  long enough to get the record that would be pretty cool. Then have him retire and Chase take over after that. That may be a dream scenario but I would to like to see it.

    • I didn’t say you did.  I said they were.   Marvin is fifth in career catches and Wayne is 10th.  Bruce is 13th and Holt doesn’t make the top 13.   Holt is 16th in career yards and 36th in TDs.     So Harrison tops Bruce in catches and TDs while Bruce has the edge in yards.  I think TDs and catches are much more important than yards. Wayne tops Holt in everything and tops Bruce in catches.     As a duo give me Harrison and Wayne.   Moss and Carter is another good duo although it was short lived and the Steelers had Stallworth and Swann.  Those are the best sets I can come up with.     The Steelers have been good at producing stud WRs as a franchise but I am not sure I would take them over Harrison and Berry who are probably two of the top 10 WRs to ever play the game and Wayne who is also probably going to end up a Hall of Famer.  
    • Where did I say they were?  Harrison and Wayne were 9th and 10th in career yards while Bruce was 5th. Harrison was 5th in TDs while Wayne was 24th. Bruce was 12th.  So it's debatable.   
    • Wayne and Harrison were just as good.
    • The St. Louis Rams had a couple of great WRs with Holt 1999-2008 and Bruce 1994-2007. Kind of hard to beat those two at the same time. Add Faulk 1999-2005 as he was maybe the best RB receiver in history. 
    • I love what Ballard has done with the roster, but honestly could care less about rankings.  Give me Ws...   Sorry man, couldn't help myself!
