Quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs typically get the most attention across the NFL. They’re the players fans know and wear the jerseys of, but 2016 has been the year of the punter.
Marquette King of the Oakland Raiders has made punters exciting again with his receiver-like athleticism and fantastic celebrations. Let’s not forget that Colts punter Pat McAfee has been celebrating big punts for years, too.
He reminded Terrelle Pryor of that two days after the Browns receiver called McAfee out for copying King’s dances.
In case you’re wondering what Pryor is referring to, here’s the dance McAfee pulled out of the bag on Thanksgiving after a perfectly executed fake punt.
Also note of the amount of time McAfee took to respond. The Colts played on Thursday, but McAfee waited until Monday to respond to Pryor, for whatever reason. It was probably just a matter of not seeing Pryor’s tweet right away, but a response four days later makes it even funnier.
