Adam Vinatieri is not going anywhere.
The 41-year-old kicker has agreed to terms on a new contract with the Indianapolis Colts, the team announced Tuesday morning. The Colts did not release the details of the deal, but both ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport report it will keep Vinatieri in Indianapolis for the next two seasons.

Vinatieri, a four-time Super Bowl champion, has shown few signs of decline even as he enters his 19th NFL season. His 87.5 percent field goal percentage last season was the fifth-highest of his career, and he ranked third in the league in field goals made (35) and first in field goals of more than 50 yards (15-for-17).
The Colts won the AFC North with an 11-5 record in 2013 and knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild-card round before being eliminated by Vinatieri’s former team, the New England Patriots.
