Vinatieri has spent the past 12 seasons with the Colts after playing for the New England Patriots during the first 10 years of his career.
The former South Dakota State standout is one of the most decorated kickers in NFL history with three Pro Bowl nods, three All-Pro First Team selections and four Super Bowl rings.
His 337 career regular-season games played are fifth in NFL history, and he is second all-time in scoring with 2,487 points, just 57 points behind Hall of Fame kicker Morten Andersen.
Additionally, Vinatieri's field-goal percentage of 84.3 percent is 13th all-time and ninth among active kickers.
Despite his advanced age, Vinatieri is still a highly productive player.
He made 29 of his 34 field-goal attempts last season and was 22-of-24 on extra-point tries for 109 points overall.
Most impressively, Vinatieri made five of his six attempts from 50 or more yards.
Provided quarterback Andrew Luck returns to the lineup for Indy in 2018 after missing all of 2017, Vinatieri may get to kick more extra points than field goals.
