On Wednesday, the 48-year-old athlete announced his retirement. He did so during his time working on the podcast “The Pat McAfee Show”.
The man with four Super Bowl rings has amassed 2,673 points in 24 seasons in his long career. He also holds the NFL record for most games played (397), consecutive field goals (44), most playoff points (238) and most playoff field victories (12).
Vinatri began his NFL career with the New England Patriots in 1996. He spent 10 campaigns with Massachusetts and won three Super Bowls there (2002, 2004 and 2005).
With the Patriots, Goodell made history on the tour by pulling the field that started the New England dynasty at the dying moments of Super Bowl XXXVI against the St. Louis Rams. Vintery did it again two years later, this time against the Philadelphia Eagles.
After his final coronation with the Bates in 2005, the University of South Dakota production continued its journey with the Indianapolis Golds, winning their fourth league title (2006). Vinateri played his last season in 2019, when he failed at a rare time in his career. In total, he starred in 14 campaigns in the Golds uniform.
