REPORT: Browns sign P Britton Colquitt to one-year deal

The Browns have signed P Britton Colquitt to a one-year deal, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

CLEVELAND-- The Browns signed themselves a Super Bowl winner. 

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Browns have agreed to a one-year deal with former Broncos punter Britton Colquitt, who was released by Denver earlier this week. 

Colquitt, 31, is heading into his eighth NFL season after spending his first seven seasons with Denver. 

During Denver's Super Bowl season, Colquitt averaged 43.6 yards per punt and put 22 punts within the 20-yard line. 

The Browns recently signed Michael Palardy and traded for Kasey Redfern, but coach Hue Jackson said the team was unsatisfied with its punting performance during the final preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

Cleveland traded former Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee to the Carolina Panthers for Redfern and a future fourth-round pick. The trade was unrelated to Lee's lack of effort on a punt return touchdown by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the team's third preseason game, according to Jackson.
