Take, for example, McAfee's response to SiriusXM's Ross Tucker (who, incidentally, was an NFL offensive lineman, starting 24 games over his seven-year career):

So that was hilarious.

Last week, McAfee told PFT that he'd consider the franchise tag an honor and wouldn't have any issues with it. He also said that his old man would "kick his ass" if he complained. No word on what McAfee's dad has planned for Ross Tucker.
