Britton joins Dustin on highly paid Colquitt list


When big brother gets a contract extension, little brother wants one too.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos just agreed to a new deal with punter Britton Colquitt, which moves him into his brother Dustin’s tax bracket.

Britton Colquitt, who had previously signed his $1.323 million restricted free agent tender, will make a $3.9 million per year average on the three new years of his deal, which will carry him through the 2016 season.

Brother Dustin’s deal with the Chiefs, which he signed in March, was a five-year, $18.75 million deal. That is slightly smaller in average per year, but with the higher overall value.

    He is a top 3 punter and an underrated weapon in the Broncos arsenal. Good move.

    Why would anyone pay that much for a punter?

    This brother combo will be even more legendary than the Manning brothers.

    It’s mind blowing to me that a punter could be making 3.9 million per year, especially on a team with one of the better offenses in the league

    Talk about an awkward Thanksgiving. The two brothers arguing about whose deal is better, culminating with them whipping out their weiners at the dining room table and grandma getting all upset.

    I’ve seen it a dozen times.

    A punter?

    Field position is critical in a game. He was deadly accurate in the game vs. SF this year and had many key punts last year. A punter who can push your opponent back 10 more yards per punt is rare and worth retaining long term.

    Good move for Denver.

    Why would they pay that much for someone who probably won’t ever see the field? (LOL)
