Adam Vinatieri thrilled to be mentioned in rap song

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Carolina Panthers Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri has an incredibly impressive football resume, having won four Super Bowls and adding the game-winning kick in two of them. He's the league's oldest player at 43 years old and is still among the best kickers in the game, but this past week he reached a dream unrelated to football: being mentioned in a rap song.

Vinatieri was mentioned in T-Wayne's "Tell Me What You Want" featuring Fetty Wap and Monty. There's a line in the rap that goes, "They so unnecessary, cause this is legendary, yeah and I'm just tryna kick it like I'm Vinatieri."

For his part, Vinatieri was thrilled to have his name dropped:

I guess it pays to be the league's oldest player and arguably the greatest kicker in NFL history, as that gets you mentioned in rap songs. Vinatieri certainly is legendary in his own right, as he has multiple Super Bowl-winning kicks, is third in league history in career field goals and points scored, and has enjoyed a career that is entering its 21st season. He's entering his eleventh season as the kicker of the Indianapolis Colts, and he has been absolutely tremendous during his tenure with the team. Now, he's even been included in a rap song - something that made his day this past Tuesday and accomplished a dream.
