24. Adam Vinatieri

Vinatieri is sure of a place in the Hall of Fame in the future. But there comes a time where a franchise has to stop being sentimental. A four-time Super Bowl winner, Vinatieri deteriorated dramatically in 2019. At the age of 46, this shouldn’t have come as surprise. Vinatieri looked like a ghost of his former self with more missed kicks than any other time in his career.

The legendary kicker hit just 68 percent of his kicks in 2019 and cost his team a place in the playoffs. That’s not an overstatement because his missed kicks were the difference in three games. The Colts finished 7-9, and if not for Vinatieri had a chance to win the AFC South Division title. It was a nightmare way for his career in Indianapolis to end, but time catches up with everybody.
