Chiefs re-signed P Dustin Colquitt to a five-year, $18.75 million contract, including $8.9 million guaranteed.
The deal makes Colquitt the NFL's highest paid punter. $8.9 million guaranteed is unheard of for a specialist. Going on 31, Colquitt was recently deemed a "bomber" by new Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub, who is among the most well respected assistants in football. Colquitt earned his first Pro Bowl trip in 2012. He's also consistently been among the most dangerous directional punters in the game with egg-beater punts that are difficult to catch.

According to Chiefs P Dustin Colquitt, Todd Haley believed Josh McDaniels was cheating during his stint as Broncos head coach.
"It has something to do with the Spygate, the videotaping," Colquitt said, explaining why Haley refused to shake McDaniels' hand after a game last year. "... And I think that Haley was like, 'Listen, based on that game I can tell what you are doing, and you are cheating.' ... So Todd was just kind of saying, 'Look, with the game plan we had and what you guys already knew we were gonna do, this is' ... basically saying it was 'bush, bush league.'"
