Does anyone have the progress report on the McAfee contract situation? It's almost July 15th which is the league stipulated deadline for players to sign long-term extensions with their current teams or face the possibility of playing out the season and negotiate thereafter. Why is it taking so darn long?
How is this not a straight-forward and done deal? He should be among the top paid punters. Just behind Morstead(7yrs/23.16m-3.5m Signing Bonus-6.925m Guaranteed), Andy Lee(7/21.6m-2.5m-3.6m) and Dustin Colquitt(5/18.75m-4m-7.9m) but a little bit ahead of Koch and Weatherford based of pure punting numbers as opposed to punting stats for the ST as a whole. Slot him in at 7 years/21m with a 3.5m signing bonus and around 4 million guaranteed and have him locked up until 2020 at the earliest.
He is one of the faces of our franchise and I would like to see him locked up long-term. Again, why hasn't this happened yet?
