He got the tag in the offseason, something that is not unheard of but not the norm for a punter. By his standards, and really by good punting standards, he is having a terrible year. 19th in punting average, 25th in net average, tied for 22nd with punts inside the 20. He only has 4 punts returned, but obviously that is because he is not able to put the ball down the field (25th in net average) and opposing teams are fair catching his 38 yard punts.
I know he is a solid kickoff guy, something we need as long as Vinateri is our kicker. But when we get a new kicker, presumably one who can kickoff, I can't see paying McAfee like he is a top punter. What say you?
