During the 2016 election campaign, however, Pence's spokesman said he does not support the concept. "I want to throw up". Olympic medal victor Adam Rippon just smacked down his haters and critics on Twitter in a perfectly balanced response.


He owns the National Football League record for field goals made of 50 or more yards with 55. His 414 made field goals ranks No. 10 on the all-time list, and he ranks 44th all time on the career field-goal percentage list. Many teams went through multiple kickers during last season.

Last season, Janikowski agreed to take a million-dollar pay cut and then dealt with a back issue which cost him the entire season.

Giorgio Tavecchio, who took over kicking duties, converted 16 of 21 field-goal attempts and 33 of 34 extra-point tries. But he ended up on injured reserve in September with a back injury. The Raiders can tender Tavecchio, who is an exclusive-rights free agent, a contract offer when free agency begins March 14.
