Raiders reportedly moving on from kicker Sebastian Janikowski after 18 years

Oakland Raiders v Arizona Cardinals

But that's about to change, as the Raiders are not expected to bring the 39-year-old Janikowski back for the 2018 season season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday. He won't be there for Gruden's second run.

The left-footed kicker known as "Seabass" is the franchise's career leader in points (1,799) and games played (268).

Gruden recently returned as Raiders head coach.

Consider this: Janikowski's career average field-goal percentage is just over 80 percent. He ranks 10th overall in field goals made and 12th in attempts. Was he worth a first-round pick? He spent all of his 18 seasons to date in the Silver and Black. Babies who were born the day Janikowski was drafted are now finishing up their senior years of high school, having never lived through a season during which Janikowski was not a Raider.

Sensex rises 167 points in early trade on firm global cues
The BSE benchmark Sensex surged over 167 points, staging a strong recovery in early trade today on firm cues from global markets. At 9.29 a.m, the Sensex was trading up 126.85 points or 0.37% at 34,282.80 with 22 components gaining.

He also holds numerous National Football League records including longest field goal in overtime (57 yards), most field goals in one quarter (4), most field goals beyond 50 (55) and 60 (2) yards and most extra points in a Pro Bowl (8). The Raiders likely wanted to stick with the younger Tavecchio while they had the chance, instead of risking losing him to another team.

Given Janikowski's age (he'll turn 40 in March), the move shouldn't come as a surprise.

Janikowski's agent has a great quote about why his client isn't interested in retiring any time soon.
