  • Sebastian Janikowski: Retiring from football

    Janikowski (hamstring) is retiring from the NFL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Janikowski has had one of the best careers of any kicker in NFL history, playing 19 seasons and making 436 career field goals, which is good enough to be tied for ninth all-time with Jason Elam. He spent last season with Seattle and made 22 of 27 attempts as well as 48 out of 51 extra point attempts before pulling his hamstring in the team's post-season loss to Dallas.

  • Seahawks' Sebastian Janikowski: Pulled hamstring in playoff loss

    Coach Pete Carroll said Janikowski isn't expected to need surgery after suffering a hamstring injury in Saturday's playoff loss to the Cowboys, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "He didn't think he did something out of the ordinary of a hamstring pull, but it was certainly significant," Carroll said.

    Janikowski will turn 41 years old in March, which is the same month he's set to hit free agency again. He was fairly reliable as a place kicker, converting 22 of 27 field goals (81 percent) and 48 of 51 extra points (94 percent). The Seahawks will continue to evaluate Janikowski's injury and likely ponder the free-agent market along with incoming rookies before making a decision to re-up his contract.

  • Seahawks' Sebastian Janikowski: Won't return Saturday

    Janikowski (thigh) was ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's wild-card game at Dallas, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Janikowski suffered the injury on a failed 57-yard field goal at the end of the first half. Punter Michael Dickson would likely fill in if the Seahawks opt to utilize a kicker, but the team understandably decided to attempt a two-point conversion following its third-quarter touchdown instead.

  • Seahawks' Sebastian Janikowski: Exits with thigh injury

    Janikowski is questionable to return to Saturday's wild-card game at Dallas after suffering a thigh injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Janikowski missed a 57-yard field goal at the end of the first half and appeared to be in significant pain as he immediately began clutching his leg. The 40-year-old made field goals from 42 and 27 yards earlier in the game, but he may be unavailable to kick in the second half. According to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, punter Michael Dickson began practicing field goals during halftime as the Seahawks attempt to patch together a potential solution.

  • Seahawks' Sebastian Janikowski: Nails game-winning kick

    Janikowski converted the game-winning, 33-yard field goal versus the Cardinals on Sunday. He also hit a 42-yarder and all three extra points.

    This is the third time this year Janikowski drilled a field goal to win the game with time expiring. Janikowski finished the season making 22 of 27 field goals (81 percent) and 48 of 51 extra points (94 percent). He showed he can still knock home the deep kick, too, with a 56-yard field goal in Week 2 versus the Bears. The 40-year-old still has some juice left in the tank, but he's regressing faster than the 46-year-old Adam Vinatieri did at that age. Janikowski's contract with the Seahawks will expire after this season, so Seattle may re-sign him if the market for kickers is dry.

  • Seahawks' Sebastian Janikowski: Drills 48-yarder

    Janikowski converted two of three extra points and a 48-yard field goal in Sunday's overtime loss to the 49ers.

    After hitting the first 33 extra points of the season, Janikowski has missed three of 10 over the last three weeks. The 40-year old is still formidable with the Seahawks, as he's nailed 18 of 22 field goals (82 percent) this season, but missed extra points could prove costly if it extends into the likely postseason.

  • Seahawks' Sebastian Janikowski: Knocks all three kicks in

    Janikowski converted both field goals and his lone extra-point attempt in Monday's win over the Vikings.

    After missing two extra points in Week 13, Janikowski bounced back. His field goals came from 35 and 37 yards, and Janikowski has now drilled all nine field goals over the last five weeks.

  • Seahawks' Sebastian Janikowski: Struggles with extra points

    Janikowski converted his only field goal attempt -- a 40-yarder -- and four of six extra points in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

    Janikowski hit all 33 extra points entering this game, so it was a concerning performance. The Seahawks could afford the misses in their 27-point win over the 49ers, but he'll need to shore up his efforts as the Seahawks make a playoff push.
