Punters are people too. The Indianapolis Colts have applied the franchise tag on punter Pat McAfee on Friday in a move that the team has officially announced.

“It’s an honor to know that I’ll be a member of the Indianapolis Colts for at least another year,” said McAfee. “I love the city, I love the team, and I love being a member of the community. I obviously hope to work out a long-term deal to stay here forever, but one more guaranteed year is awesome. Go Colts.

In his career, McAfee has a  franchise record 45.5 yard average.

According to the Colts website:

In 2012, McAfee set franchise single season records for punting average (48.2), net punting average (40.3), 50.0-yard average games (five) and tied the mark for punts inside the 20-yard line (26). He also established a team record for kickoff touchbacks (45) in a single season.
