1. Adam Vinatieri
As soon as fans are allowed back into Colts games, Adam Vinatieri will get his honor.
Adam Vinatieri deserves endless “Thank You”s for his extended tenure in Indianapolis. We can get that whole process started with a well-deserved day in his honor, as soon as COVID-19 allows us to pack Lucas Oil Stadium chock full of Colts fans.
Vinatieri was absolute nails from the day he joined the Colts in 2006, at the age of 34.
Yes, he really did last as a consistent force in Indianapolis until the 2019 season, when the 47-year-old legend of the game finally began to show a few cracks.
His best two seasons in Indy, in terms of accuracy? 2014 and 2015, at ages 42 and 42. In ’14, he made the Pro Bowl, with an absurdly accurate 96.8% mark. The next year, he dipped only slightly to 92.6%.
He started as an enemy in New England, then had enough in the tank to be on the right side of history for well over a decade. Vinatieri gets a lot of love, and the Ring of Honor should be the cherry on top.
