With the non-exclusive tag, his team has the right to match any offer sheet, or get two first-round draft picks.||||||| McAfee finished his fourth NFL season ranked fifth in the league in punting with a 47.9-yard average. His 40.3-yard net average was the best of his career. McAfee also handles kickoffs for Indianapolis.
