During his career with Indianapolis the former Mountaineer kicker was the best punter in Colts history. In eight seasons he held records in kickoffs (645), kickoff touchbacks (350), punting gross average (46.4) and punting net average (39.8).
The 29-year-old was a two-time Pro Bowler and a first-team All-Pro in 2014, and he averaged 46.4 yards per punt during his tenure with the team and is coming off his best professional season.
McAfee’s charitable contributions and charismatic personality made him a fan favorite on and off the field.
