One of football's great punters is calling it a career.
Lechler led the league in yards per punt five times and is the NFL's all-time leader in that category (47.6) while placing second in punting yards (68,676) and punts (1,713), behind former New York Giants booter Jeff Feagles.
In his farewell post to Lechler, McAfee called the punter a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and while that might be a little presumptuous in the moment, Lechler's candidacy for Canton is worth considering.
There is only punter in the Hall -- another Raider, Ray Guy -- and Lechler has as many Pro Bowl appearances and All-Pro selections as and a higher punting average than Guy. Lechler also played four more seasons than the token gold-jacketed punter.
