Pat McAfee may be headed to ESPN, according to a report Tuesday from the New York Post.
The former Colts punter currently is in the middle of a four-year, $120 million endorsement deal with FanDuel. While no deal has been signed, McAfee tweeted out a photo from a meeting he had with Disney CEO Bob Iger (ESPN is owned by Disney).
This week on The Pat McAfee Show, McAfee said he was “up to something.” An announcement from McAfee is expected in the next week or so.
“The exact amount of money McAfee would earn in a deal is unknown, though it is expected to be in the range of eight figures per year,” the Post reported. “It may be less than the FanDuel deal of $30 million-plus a year he potentially would be walking away from.”
