Adam Vinatieri announced his retirement Wednesday, and it led to an outpouring of congratulatory messages and well wishes from those around the National Football League.
Vinatieri, who spent his first 10 seasons with the New England Patriots prior to another 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, retires as the league’s all-time point scorer. The 48-year-old scored 2,673 points for the Patriots and Colts.
Former Patriots, including Julian Edelman, were among those to offer their remarks.
The Colts organization and Indianapolis teammates did much of the same.
And then there were plenty of fans and media members who added their opinions.
What a career it was for the surefire Hall of Famer.
