Steelers sign veteran punter

Changes continued for the Steelers today when they signed punter Dustin Colquitt, the son of former Steelers punter Craig Colquitt, who punted on the Steelers Super Bowl XIII and XIV teams.

The younger Colquitt punted for 15 seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs before he was released this offseason. Colquitt played in 238 games for the Chiefs, the franchise's all-time record for most games played.

For his career, Colquitt has 1,124 punts for 50,393 yards, a 44.8-yard average. He has had 98 touchbacks with 462 of his punts going inside the 20-yard line, third most in NFL history.

Colquitt is a two-time Pro Bowl selection and punted for the Chiefs Super Bowl LIV championship team.

Colquitt was the Chiefs third-round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft out of the University of Tennessee, where he was an All-SEC selection.

To make room for him on the roster the team released Jordan Berry, who has been with the team since 2015.
