Colquitt agreed to a three-year, $9 million contract with the Vikings on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The deal includes $5 million in guaranteed money.
Colquitt joined the Vikings last season after 10 campaigns elsewhere and averaged a career-best 42.6 net yards per punt, so the team decided to keep him around a while longer. With the contract in hand, Colquitt should face little-to-no competition for his job in training camp.
Colquitt punted four times and averaged 42.0 yards per attempt during Friday's preseason game against the Bills.
Colquitt, who looks healthy after undergoing a knee procedure this offseason, is competing with Justin Vogel for the punting job in Cleveland. Vogel was the better performer Friday in most punting categories, but this job battle could be far from over.

Colquitt finished fifth in the league with 47.6 yards per punt during 2017. However, he dropped just 24 punts inside the 20, ranking 24th in the league, so Cleveland scooped Justin Vogel (44.4 yards per punt) off waivers from the Packers to add competition. As long as Colquitt's recovery isn't long term, the battle projects to go through training camp.
Colquitt is being checked for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Colquitt has booted 54 punts this season, landing 16 inside the 20 yard line for an average of 48.9 yards per punt. Kicker Zane Gonzalez has taken over the punting duties and will continue to until Colquitt can return.
Colquitt signed a four-year contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.
The 31-year-old solidified himself as the Browns punter last season after spending the previous six seasons with the Broncos. He averaged 45.3 yards on 83 punts, his highest average since the 2012-13 season.
The Broncos have ruled running backs Montee Ball (groin) and Ronnie Hillman (foot) out for Sunday's game against Miami, according to Denver's final injury report for Week 12. The team also listed tight ends Virgil Green (calf) and Julius Thomas (ankle) as questionable.
Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: David Bruton (ankle), Quinton Carter (knee), Ryan Clady (groin), Britton Colquitt (illness), Paul Cornick (shoulder), Emmanuel Sanders (concussion), Steven Johnson (ankle) and Juwan Thompson (knee).
The Broncos signed Britton Colquitt to a three-year extension that makes him the NFL's fifth-highest paid punter, reports the Denver Post. Colquitt is signed through 2016.
