Pat McAfee the former Indianapolis Colts punter is reportedly joining ESPN’s broadcasts for the new 2020 XFL season. 

“(McAfee) feels like a natural with the XFL,” Lee Fitting, ESPN’s senior vice president of production, told The New York Post. “He feels like a natural down on the field for us. With the XFL, we are really pushing the access piece and the in-game access piece. Live interviews on the sideline. 


“The reporters are going to have some freedom. You put those thoughts together then why not Pat? He’s going to be a natural down there and we are going to give him a little bit of a longer leash to operate.”

The league will start in February, and will be with former Seahawks wide receiver Joey Galloway and play-by-play announcer Tom Hart.
