Pat McAfee's weeklong stint as a guest host on "NFL AM" has been a hit around the newsroom. Many have opined that he should take the gig full-time, but his broadcasting career is on hold.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the deal to be worth $14.5 million with $5 million in guarantees, per a source who's seen the contract.
McAfee has one of the league's strongest legs, helping him to become one of the NFL's most consistent punters during his five-year career. The Colts thought enough of McAfee to franchise him last offseason, but now they have him under lock and key.
"I'm super excited about it and I can't wait to get back to Indy," McAfee told a live audience, before chest-bumping fellow guest host Clinton Portis and closing the show with a dance number.
In short, a blockbuster morning for punters everywhere.
