Adam Vinetieri

first_imgIn September of 1996, Adam Vinetieri was the kicker for the New England Patriots.  With the game on the line, he prepared for a 40-yard field goal.  The conditions were terrible and he knew his job was on at stake.  Now, almost 22 years later, Adam is still kicking in the NFL because he made that field goal and the Patriots won the game.Adam is now with the Colts.  It brings up the point of how long someone can be effective as a kicker in pro football.  Us old timers remember George Blanda of the Chicago Bears still kicking field goals when he was past 50.  Without a doubt, it is the best position to play as a professional.last_img

Chelsea ‘offer Batshuayi, Barkley as part of £80m for Rice swap deal

first_imgChelsea reportedly offered Michy Batshuayi and Ross Barkley to West Ham in an £80million deal for Declan Rice. But The Times reports the Hammers rejected the swap deal and are holding out for £80m in cash. David Moyes’ side are not interested in taking on the rarely used pair. Both Barkley and Batshuayi have had peripheral roles in Frank Lampard’s Chelsea set-up. But the club were hoping to bring down the massive price tag on Rice’s name by offering some of their unwanted stars as a makeweight. Chelsea were hopeful as West Ham previously tried to sign Batshuayi and Moyes coached Barkley at Everton, but it appears to have done them no favours. Blues boss Lampard is desperate to bring in reinforcements to fix his leaky defence. Chelsea conceded more goals than any other side in the Premier League’s top ten last season and has identified Rice as a potential solution.Advertisement The 21-year-old was released by the Blues as a teenager before joining West Ham aged 14. Rice played every minute of every league game last term, but mainly in his usual position of central midfield. However, Lampard is keen to use his versatility and convert him into a talismanic centre-back. And fans were convinced Rice would return to Chelsea after being spotted with “agent” John Terry. read also:Former Chelsea star brings ‘Rice’ to Stamford Bridge Rice posed with the former Stamford Bridge hero in a post shared to Instagram by Aston Villa’s assistant manager.
