- Renck adds that the veteran punter will not be out of work long.
The Packers claimed a punter off of waivers on Tuesday from the Buccaneers, so it’s possible that they could be set, while the Bears and Cardinals could be more aggressive in pursing Colquitt.
The Broncos reportedly had Colquitt on the trading block earlier in the week before eventually cutting him loose as they got down to the 75-man roster limit yesterday.
Colquitt, 31, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee back in 2009.
He was in the final year of his four-year, $13.023 million contract that included a roster bonus of $3 million and set to make a base salary of $3.25 million for the 2016 season when he was released.
In 2015, Colquitt appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and totaled 3,416 yards punting on 84 attempts (40.6 per) and four touchbacks.
