Yes, the XFL’s rule changes make the kicking game less important but that would be ok for Vinatieri, who struggled mightily this past season. Trot him out for reasonable field goals and a kickoff here and there.
Name one kicker in the XFL right now. You can’t. With Vinatieri on the roster, you’d have instant name recognition and the greatest kicker of all-time on one of your teams. How could you say no to that?
