The Colts and Vinatieri agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis first reported Wednesday that the two parties were working out a one-year extension, and now Vinatieri's return for a 23rd NFL season is official. With a 29-for-34 mark on field-goal attempts last season -- including a 5-for-6 showing from 50-plus yards -- Vinatieri showed no signs of decline in his age-44 season. Assuming he's able to maintain the accuracy he's displayed in recent years, Vinatieri could be in store for an uptick in the 109 points he tallied in 2017. The Indianapolis offense should benefit greatly from the expected return of franchise signal caller Andrew Luck from shoulder surgery, which sidelined him for all 16 games last season.

Vinatieri plans to re-sign with the Colts on a one-year contract, which is expected to be finalized Thursday, Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

A reunion with Vinatieri and the Colts always looked to be in the cards after the 45-year-old turned in another effective campaign in 2017 while remaining adamant at various points throughout the season that he intended to keep his career going in 2018. Though a weak Colts offense limited Vinatieri to just 109 points last season -- his second-lowest total of the past six seasons -- his scoring output could recover with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) on the mend and expected to be back under center after missing all of the past season. Assuming health prevails in 2018, Vinatieri should become the NFL's all-time leading scorer at some point during the middle of the season, as he's just 57 points shy of matching Morten Andersen's record total (2,544).

Vinatieri intends to play a 23rd NFL season in 2018, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vinatieri indicated after the Colts' season ended that he had no desire to hang up his cleats, so look for Indianapolis to re-sign the veteran on a one-year deal when he hits free agency in March. Though his scoring production declined in 2017 without Andrew Luck (shoulder) directing the offense, Vinatieri was reliable as usual, converting 29-of-34 field-goal attempts and 22-of-24 extra-point tries. Two of those misses from the field came in challenging blizzard conditions in Buffalo in Week 14.

Vinatieri converted both field-goal attempts (from 54 and 22 yards) and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Vinatieri has said he plans to play in 2018 at age 45, but he's a free agent and it's not clear if he'll return to the Colts. Vinatieri may want to play for a team with better playoff prospects. Vinatieri showed he can still kick from long range as he made 5-of-6 field-goal attempts from 50 yards or more in 2017.

Vinatieri converted three of five field-goal tries in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Ravens. He also knocked in his lone extra-point attempt.

EDGE Analysis

The pair of misses were somewhat excusable, as Vinatieri's 60-yard try at the end of the first half came up short, while his 38-yard attempt in the first quarter was blocked. The veteran now sits at a respectable 27-for-32 mark from the field on the season and doesn't seem intent on calling it quits as he prepares to conclude his 22nd NFL campaign. According to Kevin Patra of NFL.com, Vinatieri, who turned 45 years old this week, said he plans on playing in 2018.

Vinatieri made both field-goal attempts (from 39 and 45 yards) and his only extra-point attempt in Thursday's loss to Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Vinatieri missed both field-goal attempts last week at Buffalo amid brutal blizzard conditions, but bounced back when home in a dome.

Vinatieri missed both field goal attempts from 43 and 33 yards in blizzard conditions in Sunday's loss at Buffalo. He did make a 43-yard extra point attempt.

EDGE Analysis

It was almost impossible to convert any field goal attempts amid blowing wind and six inches of snow, so it's hard to read too much into his misses. It was more amazing that Vinatieri actually converted the 43-yard extra point attempt that had been pushed back after a penalty.

Vinatieri's scoring opportunities could be limited Sunday with heavy snow hitting the Buffalo region.

EDGE Analysis

Vinatieri's fantasy prospects were bleak enough with a weak Colts offense supporting him, but the weather in Buffalo certainly won't do him any favors. Heading into Sunday, the veteran owns an 11-for-20 mark on career field-goal attempts in Orchard Park, by far his worst success rate at any opposing venue.
