NFL: Colts Punter Pat McAfee to Play Under Franchise Tag in 2013

Jul 14 2013, 9:28pm CDT | by

Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee will reportedly play under the franchise tag in the 2013 NFL season.

Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee will reportedly play under the franchise tag in the 2013 NFL season. 

This assures McAfee's tenure with Indianapolis will last for at least one mores season, writes the Indianapolis Star's Mike Chappell. He balso says the franchise tag, which was affixed to McAfee in March, is valued at $2.977 million. July 15 marks the deadline for a franchise player to reach a long-term deal with his team - something which will not happen in his case. 

Chappell also broke the news via his Twitter account on July 15. 

"#colts P Pat McAfee will play '13 under 1-yr. $2.977 mil franchise tag. Only other #colts player to play under tag: Edgerrin James in '05."

James was one of the Colts' biggest names at running back who played for the team from 1999-2005. He also played for the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks, last suiting up for Seattle in the 2009 NFL season. He posted 12,246 career rushing yards on 3,028 carries for a 4.0 yards-per-carry average, per ESPN stats. 

Josh Wilson of the Colts' SB Nation website, Stampedeblue.com, says in spite of James bolting for Arizona after the 2005 NFL season, he doubts the kicker known as "Boomstick" will leave Indianapolis on the same terms after 2013. He also notes McAfee is the NFL's third-highest paid kicker with the Tama Bay Buccaneers' Koenen topping the list with a $3.25 million salary. 

McAfee expressed excitement over the opportunity to play for the Colts for at least one more year in an e-mail response to the Indianapolis Star

"I'm ecstatic about the opportunity to be an Indianapolis Colt for at least another year. A long-term deal is obviously something that every player hopes to one day earn. But to have another year in a city that I love, playing for a team with the best locker room in the league and representing a fan base that is the best in the NFL is aweseome.

"My focus and hope is that my talents help bring another Lomardi trophy to an oranization and fan base that deserve it. More so than anything, I'm pumped to have another year to work in the beautiful community of Indianapolis."

McAfee averaged 47.9 yards per punt last season, a career-high per NFL.com. He also recorded 26 punts inside the 20-yard line.
