BRONCOS P BRITTON COLQUITT SIGNS RESTRICTED FREE-AGENT TENDER

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— Denver Broncos punter Britton Colquitt signed his restricted free-agent tender, it was announced on Tuesday.

Colquitt (6-3, 205 pounds) is a fifth-year player who is the franchise leader in career gross (46.1) and net (39.5) punting averages. In 2012, he broke his own team record with a 42.1 net punting average to place third in the NFL while ranking second in the league holding opponents to an average of 6.0 yards per return.

He established Broncos single-season records in both gross (47.4) and net (40.2) punting averages in 2011—a year after tying for the NFL lead with six games grossing 50 or more yards per punt.

For his career, Colquitt has played in 48 regular-season games and punted 254 times for 11,717 yards (46.1 avg.) with 18 touchbacks and 79 kicks placed inside the 20 (39.5 net). In three career playoff contests, he has punted 16 times for 680 yards (42.5 avg.) with zero touchbacks and five kicks placed inside the 20 (39.4 avg.).

Originally signed by the Broncos as a college free agent in 2009, Colquitt spent a week on Miami’s practice squad as a rookie before Denver added him to its active roster for the regular-season finale.

Britton is one of four NFL punters the Colquitt family has produced: his brother, Dustin, plays for the Kansas City Chiefs and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2012; his father, Craig, won two Super Bowl rings as the Steelers’ punter; and his uncle, Jimmy, played two games for the Seahawks in 1985.

A two-time All-Southeastern Conference selection for the University of Tennessee, Britton Colquitt attended Bearden High School in Knoxville, Tenn., and was born on March 20, 1985.
