Pat McAfee announced his retirement from the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday morning, and since that time there have been plenty of people flooding social media with tributes to the All-Pro punter.
The best of those, however, came from Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. He tweeted a video of his punt return touchdown against the Colts from their game in 2015, when he took McAfee’s kick back 71 yards to put the finishing touches on a 45-10 blowout. The video was set to the tune of the song “I will remember you,” providing the perfect tribute to McAfee.
It’s not the first time that McAfee and Brown have had fun with each other on social media. During the 2016 season, in fact, McAfee tweeted Brown before their game on Thanksgiving night asking Brown to not kick him in the face. Brown famously once kicked a Browns punter in the face trying to jump over him, and McAfee asked Brown not to do that with his mother in attendance.
Brown replied that McAfee should just kick it out of bounds then.

Kidding, happy Thanksgiving Momma McAfee !
Pat McAfee was a terrific punter, but he’s also a hilarious comedy guy who’s joining Barstool Sports as the COO of Barstool Indy to pursue a career in comedy and making people laugh. That’s a perfect profession for him, and so I’m sure McAfee has to appreciate Brown’s tweet as well.
