The Indianapolis Colts will use the franchise tag on punter Pat McAfee.

McAfee said in a statement that he hopes to stay with the Colts forever, but one more guaranteed year is a start.

“It’s an honor to know that I’ll be a member of the Indianapolis Colts for at least another year,” said McAfee. “I love the city, I love the team, and I love being a member of the community. I obviously hope to work out a long-term deal to stay here forever, but one more guaranteed year is awesome. Go Colts."
