Steelers Sign Punter Dustin Colquitt, Release Jordan Berry



The Steelers have signed free agent punter Dustin Colquitt and released punter Jordan Berry, the team announced on Monday.

Colquitt, 38, spent 15 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, winning a Super Bowl with the team in 2019, but his contract was not renewed this offseason.

Berry, who had been with the Steelers for five season, has averaged 44.2 yards per punt in his NFL career, but had a 45.5-yard average in 2019.

Colquitt has averaged 44.8 yards per kick in his NFL career, and was just shy of that mark in 2019, when he averaged 44.3 yards per punt.

The Steelers brought competition for incumbent Jordan Berry into training camp in the form of undrafted rookie Corliss Waitman, but Waitman was released by the team during cut-down day on Saturday and later added to the practice squad.

Dustin’s father, Craig Colquitt, kicked for the Steelers from 1978 to 1984 after being drafted in the third round of the 1978 NFL Draft, also out of Tennessee. Colquitt won two Super Bowls with the Steelers, in 1979 and 1980. Dustin’s younger brother Britton kicks for the Minnesota Vikings.
