The Colts announced on Monday that Adam Vinatieri will remain the team’s kicker after missing five kicks over the first two weeks of the season.That announcement came after speculation that Vinatieri would announce his retirement a day after the team beat the Titans despite his two misses.Vinatieri did not speak to reporters on Sunday or Monday Jawaan Taylor Jersey , although he had said he’d be talking on Monday after passing on questions following Sunday’s win over the Titans. He finally spoke on Tuesday and said he wasn’t thinking about retirement, but did need time to gather his thoughts after another bad day at the office.“Sometimes we all need a little time to decompress, I needed a little extra time,” Vinatieri said, via the . “Little time to clear my mind . . . I’m going to work this week to get the demons out and be clear headed on Sunday.”Vinatieri said he feels “plenty healthy” and has been studying a lot of film in hopes of cleaning up what’s wrong with his game. The next test of that will come against the Falcons this weekend. ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP)When you play for the Detroit Lions, you can be from Canada and still be considered local.Luke Willson, a tight end who signed with the Lions two months ago after five seasons with Seattle Josh Oliver Jersey , is from Windsor, Ontario, right across the Detroit River from the Motor City. He grew up a Lions fan, although that’s not his only motivation to play well after returning to the area.”I was a big Barry Sanders guy. When I was a kid, it was kind of like the Herman Moore, Barry Sanders,” Willson said this week. ”I was a youngster, but I’ve always kind of , you know, liked the Lions growing up. But that being said I think it’s important for me to establish a divide. Yeah it was my childhood team, but I’m here to do a job.”It’s been a fairly quiet offseason for the Lions where free agency is concerned, but Willson was an interesting pickup, especially after Detroit cut ties with tight end Eric Ebron. A former first-round draft pick, Ebron became a target for Lions fans for dropping passes, but he did provide production that Detroit needs to replace. He caught 186 passes over the past four years, including 53 for 574 yards and four touchdowns last season.In five seasons with Seattle Ryquell Armstead Jersey , the 6-foot-5 Willson never had more than 22 catches, but the Seahawks have had other tight ends to throw to like Jimmy Graham and Zach Miller, so Willson may be capable of more.”I really try to pride myself on being able to do whatever they ask,” Willson said. ”You know, my first year we had Zach Miller, I was more the down-the-seam tight end, and Zach got hurt and you know, I had to quickly learn to be more the hand-down type guy. I think that’s kind of benefited me in my career because I feel comfortable doing whatever they ask me to do.”Willson said at this stage of the offseason , it’s too early to tell what exactly his role will be with the Lions.”I’m here to do whatever the coaches ask me and right now, you know with all the CBA rules, it’s personally just about getting better each day,” he said. ”A lot of individual stuff for me that I can get better and just showing the coaches what I can do, and then from there they’ll decide what role I’ll be playing this year.”Despite the proximity to the U.S., Willson said the quality of high school football where he grew up wasn’t great. He played on a summer team he likened to AAU basketball. He ended up playing college football at Rice, and he was drafted by the Seahawks in the fifth round in 2013.He has carved out a decent NFL career for himself since then, and now he has a chance to come back and play close to home – although it sounds like he’ll be living on the Detroit side of the river now.”Got to shield myself from those Canadian taxes Marquise Brown Jersey , man,” he said. ”Come on, now. Can’t be doing that. Can’t be doing that.”—
