On Wednesday, longtime NFL kicker Adam Vinatieri announced his retirement from the NFL after 24 seasons.

A New England Patriot for his first 10 seasons from 1996 to 2005, Vinatieri built his legacy as the games most clutch kicker of all time, winning the teams first two Super Bowls in the final seconds alongside his heroics during the 2001 “Snow Bowl” leading up to the first title. He would win three Super Bowls with the Patriots and a fourth with the Indianapolis Colts.

Vinatieri retires as the NFL’s all-time leading scorer with 2,673 points and will have played in more combined regular season and playoff games than anybody else in league history.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and team Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft each issued the following statements regarding Vinatieri’s retirement.

During his press conference Thursday morning, Belichick opened up with a tribute to Vinatieri, sharing some additional praise and admiration.
