Daily Cleveland Browns Roster Breakdown: Britton Colquitt

Veteran punter, Britton Colquitt, looks to give the Browns some consistency on their special teams.

This is the 13th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. Unlike Britton’s punts, I try to keep these short and sweet.

#4- Britton Colquitt– P- Tennessee

I call this guy “The American Revolution” because I haven’t seen a Britton pin someone back into their own territory as he does since the Battle of Bunker Hill. Unfortunately for the Browns, I have watched enough World Cups to know that Britton kickers tend to choke under pressure and underperform on the big stage. Let’s hope Colquitt doesn’t have that same stage fright during the playoffs.

At age 34, the veteran punter is the 2nd oldest player currently on the Browns roster (Drew Stanton is an ancient 35). Last year, Colquitt punted 83 times with a booming 79 yarder as his season long. He also pinned the opposition inside their own 20-yard line 32 times. He will need to continue to impress this offseason with new fan-favorite, Jamie “The Scottish Hammer” Gillan, signing with the team last month. I’m no European history expert, but I believe the last time the Scottish and Britain went to war, Britain did not come out on top.

Most seasons, the Cleveland punter has been a focal point of the team, often times getting more touches than most skill position players on the squad. Barring catastrophe, that should all change this season though. Britton’s brother, Dustin, only had to punt 45 times with the high powered Chiefs offense last year. I would expect Cleveland’s Colquitt to have numbers closer to that this fall.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
