And then there were two.
Colts punter Pat McAfee has become the sixth franchise player to accept his one-year franchise tender, according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
McAfee, a seventh-round pick in 2009, will earn a guaranteed salary of $2.977 million in 2013.
In February, McAfee told PFT Live that his dad would “kick my ass” if McAfee refuses to accept the one-year deal.
The only unsigned franchise players are Bills safety Jairus Byrd and Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady. The franchise tender can be rescinded at any time before it is signed.
