Dustin Colquitt’s Announcement
Colquitt was a 2-time Pro Bowler (2012 and 2016) and averaged 44.8 yards per put throughout his illustrious career. During the 2017 NFL season, he became the Chiefs all-time leader in both punts and punting yards passing Jerrel Wilson. Colquitt also holds the Chiefs record for longest punt (81 yards back in 2007).
