Another big piece of the New England Patriots' dynasty appears to have left the team.
Kicker Adam Vinatieri Ã¢â‚¬â€ who kicked two game-winning field goals in Patriots Super Bowl wins, as well as another game-winning kick in an epic divisional playoff game against the Raiders Ã¢â‚¬â€ has signed with the Colts, Boston radio station WEEI is reporting.
The Patriots declined to protect their kicker, who had been named the team's franchise player twice, with the franchise-player tag.
"It just didn't feel like the right thing to do," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said of the decision not to tag Vinatieri. "We considered all our options and decided not to tag anybody."
Last week, linebacker Willie McGinest signed a three-year, $12 million with the Browns, where the two-time Pro Bowl selection will reunite with former Patriots defensive coordinator and current Cleveland coach Romeo Crennel.
Additionally, the Patriots lost starting receiver David Givens, who signed with the Titans. The future of receiver/defensive back Troy Brown with the team is also uncertain.
