Say it ain't so!!! Our punter — a 29-year-old punter with a $2.75 million salary next season — is walking away from the NFL in order to join a satirical sports website. Pat McAfee, who led the NFL in punting last year, said that he may be making a huge mistake by retiring from the Colts with two years left on his contract, but he says comedy is where his heart is! He may take harder hits in his new gig as the Indianapolis head of the Barstool Sports “bureau,” but this is a move he felt he had to make.
The move was also made a bit easier by reports of possible multiple surgeries in McAfees future in order to continue playing in the NFL
We love Pat either way and wish him well!!!
