Radio Row: Adam Vinatieri, 46, still fighting Father Time
17 years ago, Tom Brady and Adam Vinatieri combined to win Super Bowl XXXVI for the Patriots.
17 years later, they are the only remaining active players in the NFL from one of the greatest upsets in Super Bowl history.
Vinatieri stopped by Radio Row to chat with Zolak & Bertrand about his memories from his game-winning kick, how he continues to play at a high level after so long in the league, and his future in the NFL.
The greatest kicker in NFL history said he’s in awe of the success the Patriots have had, noting that he’s experienced “two full careers” in his playing days, one in New England and one in Indianapolis.
“It’s unbelievable that they just keep on doing their thing. It’s amazing. The people change except for Tom and Bill and they just find a way to get it done. It’s awesome,” Vinatieri said.
The 46-year-old Vinatieri said he feels good as he prepares to enter his 24th NFL season next year. He said he has learned over the years how to best keep his body in playing shape, even after nearly a quarter of a century in the league.
“I’m trying to fight Father Time the best I can” he said.
