Pat McAfee has announced his retirement from football at the age of 29.

McAfee made the announcement on Comedy Central and said he plans to work for Barstool Sports.

The punter has done stand-up comedy in Indiana the past couple of offseasons.

McAfee met with Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay for 45 minutes Monday to tell him about the decision. He still had two years remaining on his five-year, $14.5 million contract.
