Punter Pat McAfee followed along the great lineage of Colts' kickers after being picked up for a public drunkenness early Wednesday morning.

Doesn't it seem like just yesterday when we saw a very candid Peyton Manning talking about, "our idiot kicker who got liquored up and ran his mouth off?"

That was a few years back when Mike Vanderjagt was drunk and spouting off about the clutch level of the former MVP quarterback.

Well, Pat McAfee is not Mike Vanderjagt, but the two do have something in common.

They both appear to have a taste for the "sauce." According to WEEI, McAfee was released from jail at noon after being found shirtless and soaking wet by a canal in Indianapolis' nightlife district. Reportedly, his blood alcohol level was clocked at .15, nearly twice the legal limit for driving.

Apparently, there's something about being a Colts kicker that makes alcohol taste really good, perhaps he was upset by his limited use the past couple of seasons. There are better ways to relieve stress. A nice round of golf perhaps?

McAfee made no mistake of letting everyone know of his bye week intentions with his most recent Twitter post: "Bye week bye week bye week. Time to get some s**t done. Happy Tuesday Party people." 

It is unclear right now as to what his immediate future with the organization will be, although a suspension seems likely.

If McAfee plans on keeping his cushy job as the punter for one of the league's best offenses, he needs to be sorry and embarrassed. If he serves whatever punishment handed out to him whole-heartily, there is no reason he won't be back on the field soon.
