Colts 2-time Pro Bowl punter announces retirement at age 29

INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee says he is retiring.

The 29-year-old two-time Pro Bowl pick made the announcement in a statement on Twitter, thanking fans for their support over the last seven seasons.

McAfee wrote that three knee surgeries in four years, the expectation of additional operations in the future and an enticing offer to work for Barstool Sports convinced him to walk away despite having two years and nearly $6 million remaining on his contract.
