The Chiefs used a third-round pick on punter Dustin Colquitt in 2005 in a move that settled the position for more than a decade.
Colquitt’s run in Kansas City is set to continue through at least the 2020 season. Colquitt’s agents announced that their client has signed a new three-year deal with the Chiefs.
They peg the base value of the deal at $7.5 million with a chance to go up to $9 million.
Colquitt punted 65 times last season and posted a net average of 41.1 yards per kick. That’s a career best for Colquitt, who has a net average of 39.8 yards for his career.
