Nike Colts #1 Pat McAfee Black Men’s Stitched NFL Impact Limited Jersey
The Indianapolis Colts have named punter Pat McAfee as their local nominee for the NFL’s Salute to Service Award. This is the second consecutive year McAfee has been named the team’s nominee and in 2015, he was a national finalist. This award was started in 2012 by the NFL to recognize players for their extraordinary efforts to honor and serve U.S. service members and veterans. Every year, each of the 32 NFL teams nominates a player, coach or staff member to be considered for the national award.
Pat McAfee is an athlete with a great right arm. During Training Camp, it’s not far fetched to see McAfee throwing the ball around during practice. That skill allows the Colts to implement such a trick play. One interesting aspect of this play was having Donte Moncrief on the field as a gunner. This should have alerted the Steelers that something was up. This is a unique pre-snap look with Erik Swoope the only in-line body to the left of long snapper Matt Overton.
With McAfee, Barstool is adding a perspective from an ex-professional athlete, with no handcuffs and filter allowing ‘Pat to be Pat.’
Walking away from more than 5 million dollars is something McAfee knows seems crazy to many, but it was time for the former Pro Bowl punter to pursue a new endeavor.
“I will not be getting back in and playing football, unless this completely fails, which it has a chance to,” McAfee admits. “This has a chance to fall right on its face. But we’ll see what happens.
Hilton, meanwhile, received an overall rating of 87.3 from Pro Football Focus this season, a figure that ranks fifth in the NFL.

But looking at the pure stats, Hilton, for the first time in his career, won the NFL’s receiving title by leading the league with 1,448 yards. In all, he had 91 receptions and six touchdowns, and his 28 receptions of 20-plus yards on the season were the most in the NFL.
In early January, the Colts did go out and sign young punter/kicker Devon Bell, a 2016 undrafted free agent who has punting experience and kickoff work from his collegiate days at Mississippi State. Having yet to play in an NFL regular season game, Bell spent the 2016 preseason with the Detroit Lions.
Hilton, who earned his third consecutive Pro Bowl selection in 2016, recorded his fourth straight 1,000-yard receiving season and finished with single-season career highs in receptions (91), receiving yards (1,448) and scrimmage yards (1,448).
He led the NFL in receiving yards, becoming the first Colt to do that since Reggie Wayne in 2007, and marking the eighth time in team history that a Colts played led the league in receiving yards (four times in Indianapolis, four times in Baltimore). Hilton also led the league with 16 25-plus-yard receptions, as he continued to establish himself as one of the top deep threats in the NFL.peyton manning colts jersey authentic
New GM Chris Ballard could spend a draft pick on a new punter/kickoff man. The Colts have a full cupboard of draft picks, outside of their seventh rounder (which they traded for former DL-Billy Winn in 2015). If the Colts earn a seventh-round compensatory pick later this offseason, which is a possibility, that could be used on a rookie punter.
