I remember the first time I saw Britton Colquitt. It was late July, 2009 and I was at the Denver Broncos Training Camp at the teams Training Complex in Dove Valley. It was my first Camp experience, The team had a brand new fresh faced coach and I wanted to see what my favorite team was going to look like with a new beginning. The Broncos had a veteran Punter by the name of Brett Kern, who was a holdover from the previous season and they had also brought in an Undrafted Free Agent named Britton Colquitt for competition. The Colquitt family is well represented in football circles, as his father Craig won 2 Super Bowl Rings with the Pittsburgh Steelers and his brother Dustin plays for Division rival Kansas City Chiefs. There is also his little known uncle Jimmy, who played for the Seattle Seahawks.

Britton did not make the team and was let go during the last roster cuts on September 1, 2009. I thought he had a great Camp at the time and really wondered why he was released. I felt that he out performed Kern and deserved a shot. My analysis was justified when Brett Kern ended up shanking his way off the roster. Veteran Mitch Berger was brought in to replace Kern in Week 7 and I puzzled over that decision too. Finally, in December, the Broncos resolved the situation and poached Britton from the Miami Dolphins Practice Squad and placed him on their Active Roster on December 30, 2009. Colquitt has been steadily improving since then.
