Pat McAfee, a retired eight-year NFL veteran punter and former Barstool Sports personality, has signed with CAA as he continues to forge his career after football in the media industry.
Since retiring from the NFL, McAfee has been a guest panelist for WWE events and most recently was a popular employee of Barstool Sports. Upon initially retiring, his personality caught the eyes of NFL Network and offered him to be on a show. However, McAfee turned them down to work with Barstool founder, Dave Portnoy, instead. McAfee developed the Barstool Heartland division of the company based in Indianapolis in addition to hosting “The Pat McAfee Show” podcast as well.
After a falling out between McAfee and Barstool in late August, he called himself a “free agent”. Since leaving Barstool, McAfee has been a guest on numerous shows including ESPN’s Get Up. His latest comedic stunt was going undercover disguised as an elderly man to boot field goals for charity at the halftime of a Colts game. It seems that he still has some left in the tank as McAfee nailed three field goals to raise $70,000 for cancer research. CAA will represent McAfee in all areas including comedy, broadcasting, touring and podcasting.
