NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has done a lot of changing during his 15-year NFL career.
He's gone from being the brash, hard-living, party-chasing kid out of Florida State who made headlines for all the wrong reasons to a much calmer father of two who prefers quiet times with his children over the social scene.
What hasn't changed is Janikowski's powerful left leg.
The 36-year-old remains one of the strongest kickers in the league and is closing in on the NFL record for the most made field goals of 50 yards or longer in a career.
To get it, Janikowski will have to bounce back from a rough 2013 and foster a better relationship with second-year holder Marquette King.
The two worked out together privately two months ago and have looked much smoother since training camp began.
