adam vinatieri

Seemingly meaningless Week 17 games between two mediocre teams do mean something in Vegas, for draft position and, most notably for Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, for player bonuses. Vinatieri has a clause in his contract that awards him a $500,000 bonus if he makes 90 percent of his field goals on the season.

So what happened against the Jaguars? He promptly missed his first kick of the day, a 48-yard attempt in the second quarter and therefore missed out on a chance to get the bonus.
