Colquitt & Prater were HUGE for our team last season! I'm glad to see the FO taking care of them. Prater with the franchise tag & now resigning Colquitt!

Aside from signing Manning, resigning Colquitt is the most exciting news for me this offseason! Everyone will say "its the altitude...thin air..blah blah blah" Well we all saw the Mitch Berger Fiasco first hand. Knowing we locked up one of the best punters in all of the NFL is great news!

Colquitt is one of my favorite players on the team. For most teams the punter is somewhat interchangeable, but once in a while you find a guy who is so reliably good at this position that you want to keep him around. Colquitt is that rare guy, and can be a huge factor in the success of this team.

Very glad this deal got done.

How did we do this? I thought we only had $13 left on our cap?

Now that we have Manning, he might be the least utilized punter in the league.:thumb::D:goz:

Now let's lock up Prater long term!

I see on NFL.com that we re-signed Colquitt didn't hear about this anywhere else!? does anyone have a little more info on this? If we did. I'm glad we did, he is one of few bright spots we have on this team. (Per NFL - Britton Colquitt (P) re-signed/exclusive rights free agent):goz::D

To a long-term deal or is this a 1-year deal off his RFA deal?

Good news though, best punter in the league.

I'm shocked it took this long to sign Colquitt. I was sure more teams would want him too. Well, good news for us!

Just a small crack at all the uncertaintiy of our cap space, and people saying we barely have enough to sign our draft picks.

We had spent39 million as I have heard and we had 44 available I think the additional 5 million as already accounted for for our draft.

2nd only to the guy from OAK

great news. great punter. Hopefully we never have to go through something like Mitch Berger again.

Great signing, but he's going to have a slightly different role without the Tebow / Fox painful ball control, field position game we played last year. It's great to have him back, but I'm hoping we rely much less on this kid's leg.

But we also have the money we carried over from last year right?

He signed the 1 year tender. $540,000 in 2012, FA in 2013.

Hopefully we can get a long-term deal done.

Same here. :salute: Its kind of wierd to have a punter be your favorite player on your team, but Colquitt is 1 of mine. Plus hes an awesome guy outside of football as well. But he is 1 of the best punters in the game, and I enjoy watching him punt. Hope he is around for a long time. :salute:

Great signing. And we even have Prater, too.

They're both keepers.

Not sure if this should be news.

Maybe only if we were dumb enough NOT to re-sign him...

Great signing. Yes we have to great kickers. One seems to have a good head on his shoulders. The other, not so much.

1 year deal it looks like, but he is still a Restricted FA next year... we were never in doubt or resigning him. Our kickers were great last year and it really was the difference in our field position and tight game scenarios last year. Our special teams have been suspect over the past 5-6 years - too many big returns... but last year was the first in a while that I felt comfortable.

I hope Britton stays a Denver Bronco for a long time.

McDaniels is an oxymoron.
