Dustin Colquitt gets new 3-year deal with Chiefs

New, comments

THREE MORE YEARS!

The Kansas City Chiefs are bringing back punter Dustin Colquitt on a new three-year contract. Chiefs GM Brett Veach said yesterday he expected something to get done soon.

According to Colquitt’s agents, it’s worth $7.5 million over three years. I don’t know how it’s structured but it looks like the salary cap hit will be much lower than the $4.9 million hit he had last season.

This is good for Colquitt, who never seemed like he wanted to leave Kansas City, and for the Chiefs, who never looked into another punter.

This makes me wonder if this contract will end Colquitt’s career in Kansas City. He turns 36 in a few weeks so he’s already getting up there. Kickers can play quite a long time so if you told me he played into his 40s I wouldn’t be surprised.
