Antonio Brown Tweets Hilarious Farewell to Colts Punter Pat McAfee (Video)
Antonio Brown and Pat McAfee played on different teams in different divisions. However, the two developed a pretty solid rapport on Twitter over the past couple of years, so it was only fitting that Brown would respond to McAfee’s surprise retirement with a little gentle ribbing.
McAfee, the former Colts punter and aspiring comedian, announced on Wednesday that he was retiring from football at the age of just 29 and taking a job with Barstool Sports. Brown, the recently embattled Steelers superstar, took to Twitter on Thursday to say farewell…by Tweeting a video of his 71-yard punt return touchdown off McAfee from December 2015 and setting it Sarah McLachlan‘s “I Will Remember You.”
