Colts’ Adam Vinatieri Discusses Likely Final Game at Gillette Stadium

Published

on

Thursday Night likely marked the final time that Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, who played close to a decade in New England, would ever play at Gillette Stadium as he is closing out his legendary career.

Vinatieri, 45, is still going strong, but took the time after the game to talk about how special playing in Gillette Stadium again was for him.

“This is a special place and it always will be,” Vinatieri said, during an appearance on WEEI. “It’s a special place and it’s got a lot of nostalgia for me, obviously. It’s a fun place to play. The fans are wild and crazy and it’s a hard place to win if you’re an opposing team. We just didn’t play well enough obviously. Walking off the field it was kind of a neat feeling. It was pretty cool [the ovation he received walking off the field], it really was, and I appreciate that. A lot of the fans were pointing up at the banners and stuff like that. It was pretty cool. It will always hold a special place in my heart for the 10 years I spent here with such a great team and organization and great fans.

“It was neat. I only heard one person say, ‘You suck’ then another guy said, ‘No you don’t Vini, we love you!’ In years past they were more brutal on me but lately they’re just nice to me so it’s good stuff.”
