According to several "reports" and "rumors", Bill Parcells may be targeting Adam Vinatieri in the free agent market. The Cowboys had a terrible time with their place kicker during the 2005 season Scott Norwood, Billy Cundiff, etc. and are looking for an upgrade. Will it be Vanderjagt, Bryant or Vinatieri? In evaluating their kicking albatross, The Ranch Report evaluates Vinatieri and the likes:
The talk continues in a related article that the cowboys are also looking at Tampa's Matt Bryant:
All that being said, a lot of former players complain and moan about Parcells. But, when they have a chance to follow him somewhere, (ala Drew Bledsoe, Curtis Martin, Keyshawn Johnson, Terry Glenn and several others) the majority of them go. I for one do not want Vinatieri to leave, but I am sure it will come down to money as it always does. I hope he considers that he is a legend in New England and he has a much better chance to earn additional jewelry here than he would in Irving, Texas.
