The Indianapolis Colts haven't had anyone play under the franchise tag since Edgerrin James in 2005. It appears that will change this season.

The Indianapolis Star reported Sunday that punter Pat McAfee will play under the one-year, $2.977 million franchise tag, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

According to The Star, it's unknown if the Colts explored getting a deal done before Monday's deadline for franchise players to sign long-term contracts.
