Pat McAfee shocked the football world on Wednesday night when he announced his retirement from the NFL… to join Barstool Sports.
That sentence sounds crazy enough without any additional information, but it’s even more surprising when you consider that McAfee’s just 29 and was still one of the best punters in the NFL. He set the Colts’ single-season franchise record with a gross punting average of 49.3 in 2016, and had a rock-solid eight-year career with Indianapolis.
But, that doesn’t mean that McAfee’s career came without some lowlights, and Pittsburgh Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown took to Twitter to remind McAfee of one such instance.
Brown shared a video Thursday night of a McAfee punt he returned for a touchdown during a Steelers-Colts game in December of 2015 (you probably remember the touchdown return, as it included quite the end zone celebration from Brown). Well, not only did Brown return the McAfee punt for a touchdown, but he made McAfee look silly on the play, as is usually the case when punters try to tackle explosive players in the open field.
Oh, and the best part- Brown set this video highlight to Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You”:

That is a superb troll job by Brown, and McAfee — known for his personality and sense of humor — will surely get a laugh out of it.
