ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Britton Colquitt spent close to an hour with his wife and their 1-year-old son in one of the corporate tents at the Denver Broncos headquarters following practice Monday.

The NFL's new highest-paid punter swears he wasn't being a snob. He just didn't realize he was keeping a throng of media members waiting for him at the podium.

It's not every day that punters get this kind of attention -- or make this kind of money.

Colquitt became the league's highest-paid punter when he signed his three-year, $11.7 million extension upon arriving to work Monday.

The deal included a $3 million signing bonus that, when added to this year's $1.275 million salary, also makes him the NFL's highest-compensated punter in 2013.
