Goodell recently stated how the kicking of field goals and the extra point could be changed in the near future, questioning whether there is a need for the PAT.
However, the kicker - who has four Super Bowl rings to his name across his 18 years in the league - has disagreed that alterations need to be in a negative sense, suggesting that any changes made should reward a team with more than the three points currently on offer from a field goal.
Vinatieri told reporters: "I don't think any of us kickers are above the ability to change football from what it is. I mean, it's been the way it has been for 100 years. I don't know if we should start changing that stuff up now.
"If anything, make a 50-yard field goal worth four points instead of three. Now all of a sudden we become more valuable rather than less valuable."
The 41-year-old has 499 career field goals to his name, and he converted 35 of his 40 attempts during the 2013 regular season.
