Harrison: Team needs in free agency

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.

In short, a blockbuster morning for punters everywhere.
