Wow...I think BP pulled the trigger a little too quickly on this one. But then again, only the team knows what goes on in practice.
Thats a big hit financially, and they wouldn't do it unless he was at a point of no return most likely. Not going after Vinatieri hurts now for you guys.
I never thought he was good. I always said he sucks. Even in Indy, prior to last season I thought so. Hes never hit a clutch kick his entire career.
Having that said...I wish he was still on your team.
Actually, I read something awhile back that said the Cowboys did go after Vinatieri. He was supposed to visit Dallas right after Indianapolis, but instead he went ahead and signed with the Colts and the plane ticket was never used. I don't have a link for it now; it's been too long ago. But I agree that it hurts.
This experiment failed miserably, I hope this is the first and last time we ever spend big money on a kicker. It's crazy to think there are so many good kickers out there making next to nothing and we were paying this guy 3 mil.
