    It was the signing bonus that got him guys. If the organization has the reluctance to pay a 3.5 mill signing bonus for a positon where you rarely have injuries, then:

    A. The Pats know somethings wrong with Adam
    B. Kraft is not willing to spend a lot on signing bonuses.



    Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the contract agreed to with the Indianapolis Colts by free agent PK Adam Vinatieri (Patriots) included a $3.5 million signing bonus, with an annual average salary of $2.5 million.

    R_T -
    You have NO CLUE what it was that got Adam to sign with the Colts. NONE. Other than a contract in general. Its total pure speculation on your part. But, you're good at providing that without any support.

    So you're saying it's a $2.5M average salary in addition to a $3.5M bonus ? Or is the $2.5M the average cost, including the salary and the yearly piece of the signing bonus ?

    Or (C), Adam wanted to leave and didn't even give the Patriots the chance to match. We really don't know.

    well


    The average salary had to be about what the pats were offering him. Plus the pats were probably offering him like a $2mil bonus. I believe he just wanted out for some reason, or realized he had burned a lot of bridges and just took the best offer. We will probably never know what really happened, but the pats offer couldn't be that far off, unless that is all guarenteed money!

    Dear Adam

    Do you know how long it took me to learn how to pronounce your name just to appease my Pats fanatic boyfriend? Do you know how many games I've had to sit through and and hear how great your foot is?
    *sigh* Now I'll have to learn new players. New statistics. New everything.
    Dear Adam, may your golden foot turn to heavy lead.

    what else could it be that got him to sign, 72 virgins? it was the contract. the patriot reporters, the ones w/ connections, said the Pats offered him a contract of 2.5 a year but no guaranteed money. The Colts offered him 3.5 guaranteed. As for support i just gave you support. the annual average salary usually includes the signing bonus as well.

    And DB, stop using your Boilerplate responses, all your replies are "how do you know". I know from what I read. What are the other reasons you think Adam left. If a key rival had the same losses as we have had and they tried to argue that they will be fine, you would be the first person to have a long drawn out response about how the team got worse. Its ok to be balanced without being a bandwagoner or a doomsdayer.
