With free agency set to kick off on Tuesday, March 11, Elliot Harrison identifies top priorities for each NFL franchise. READ

The Colts punter broke a little news Friday, announcing on NFL Network that he's agreed to terms with Indianapolis on a new five-year contract.

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.
