The 13-year player has been to a pair of Pro Bowls and is now the longest tenured Chief on their roster.
The Kansas City Chiefs signed punter Dustin Colquitt to a three-year contract, his agent announced over social media. The lifetime of the deal, which the Chiefs have not yet confirmed, is worth $7.5 million, and that could turn into $9 million if incentives are reached, the agency posted on Twitter.
On Wednesday, Brett Veach, the team's general manager, mentioned that the Chiefs and Colquitt were close on another extension and that something would be done soon.
About to enter his 14th National Football League campaign, Colquitt was among the top punters in 2017 finishing in the top ten in net punting average and kicks inside the 20. That placed him 18th in the NFL.
Colquitt made the Pro Bowl in 2016 and 2012.
Colquitt, who has only missed two games in his entire career, has notched 1,031 punts, 46,246 punt yards, and 420 punts downed inside the 20. Eric Berry, Justin Houston, Jarvis Jenkins and Anthony Sherman are 29.
