Take that big brother. The Broncos have agreed to terms on a new four-year $13 million contract with punter Britton Colquitt. He can make another $1.2 million in incentives. The deal will be signed Monday morning when Colquitt reports to the Broncos' training camp practice. Colquitt was scheduled to draw a $1.323 million salary as a restricted free agent this year. The three-year $11.7 million extension comes to an annual average of $3.9 million that makes him the NFL's highest paid punter. The previous most-compensated punter was his older brother Dustin Colquitt who in March received a five-year $18.75 million extension — $3.75 million a year — from the Kansas City Chiefs. "I don't really understand how all that works but Paul (Sheehy) my agent was saying something about that" Colquitt said. So Britton won't be calling older brother to rub it in? "No" Colquitt said laughing. "I definitely feel like he's deserving of all that he's received for all that he's done. I'm just humbled and thankful and blessed that the Broncos like me that much." There's much to like. At 28 Colquitt is not only one of the league's best young punters. He's one of the best period. He not only can boom with the best of them he is exceptional in height and placement of his punts. In 2012 Colquitt was third in the NFL with a 42.1 yard net average. He pinned 27 punts inside the 20 against just 4 touchbacks and he had the second-stingiest return average of 6.2 yards.
