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.
