Vinatieri has the clutch kick in the snow that ushered in the Patriots dynasty and four Super Bowl Rings. The Pro Football Hall of Fame doesn’t love special teams’ players, but this one is special. He is getting in; it is just a question of which ballot.
Following a future Hall of Famer (Vinatieri) isn’t easy but Gostkowski has filled those shoes admirably with four Pro Bowls and three Super Bowls of his own. He is at present 15th all-time in Field Goals and 3rd all-time in Field Goal Percentage.
Slater is the only Special Teamer on this list and we all know how difficult a path that means for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is a seven-time Pro Bowl Selection and three-time Super Bowl Champion so this means something.
