Will he stay or will he go?
That’s the question everyone is asking with regards to Pat McAfee, as recent “rumblings” have suggested that the NFL punter-turned-popular sports personality is considering taking his talents from FanDuel to ESPN.
The report from the New York Posts claims that McAfee could ditch his $120-million deal with FanDuel. And ESPN seems like the logical company to land the former Colts punter next, as he already makes regular appearances on the network’s College GameDay and WWE broadcasts.
During the Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday, Pat himself responded to the rumors, and fans will be happy to learn that he’s not going anywhere.
According to McAfee, he and his crew are “to dumb to change” networks. They also brought up the fact that these rumors are nothing new for the Pat McAfee Show, as it has seemingly become an annual tradition for them.
McAfee seems like he’s a man of his word, so we’re going to trust him when he says that he has no plans to leave FanDuel.
The two-time Pro Bowler signed a four-year deal with Fanduel worth $120-million. He is currently midway through the second year of that contract, so leaving now would cost him millions. Would ESPN be willing to pay him enough to make it worth his while? We may never know the answer to that question.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
