Veteran kicker Sebastian Janikowski is retiring, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. The mercurial lefty played 19 NFL seasons, the first 18 coming with the Oakland Raiders. Last year, his last, was with Seattle.
Janikowski made 436 of his 542 field goal attempts and 605 of his 614 extra point tries. His unique shape made him one of the more recognizable specialists in the game for many years.
There’s a good chance he’ll be the last placekicker taken in the first round (17th overall in 2000).
