Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski Wants to Kick For Another 7-8 Years

Oakland Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski wants to kick for another 7-8 years. That would make him 43 when he finally calls it quits.

“I want to play as much as I can,” Janikowski said. “I want to win the Super Bowl. That’s the ultimate goal.” –

He is a kicker. Don’t those guys last till the age of 70? Brett Favre was playing till he was 90 and he was taking the beating from players like Michael Strahan on a weekly basis.

Janikowski has to kick the ball through the uprights. I can’t say that I can do this, but Janikowski can kill the football when he puts his foot to it. As he gets older, he might lose some leg strength, but that means his range would be around 50+ yards out.

I think he should be safe to be kicking the ball for a solid 7 to 8 years and probably longer if he wants to. That should give him enough dough to buy brews for the rest of the days of his life.
