Default Why did we sign Colquitt to only a 1 year deal?

Am I missing something here? Wasn't he one of the best punters in the league, top 5-7 punter I thought. Why in hell would we only lock him up for 1 year?

I don't know - that wouldn't make much sense to me. You could cut somebody like Lance Ball to cover the punter contract. Having a stud punter is crucial. Might have to submit this question to Kils.

He was a restricted free agent and he signed the 1 year tender the Broncos designated him with. The Broncos designated him "with a right of first refusal" that pays him 1.3 million next year. They could have also tagged him with a second round tender which would have him a little over 2 million. The Broncos have expressed a desire to negotiate a long term contract with him.
