Tennessee football players made a splash at NFL training camp. Former Volunteers Dustin Colquitt and Ramon Foster arrived in style.
Arriving at NFL training camp in style has been a thing for players this week. And Tennessee football was no different. The shock, however, was the player who managed to make a splash while doing it.
One of the oldest players from UT in the NFL, who happens to be a punter, is the guy who stood out for his entrance. Hey, given the fact that Rocky Top is now officially Punter U in the pros, it does make sense in a way.
Kansas City Chiefs Punter Dustin Colquitt rolled up in a heavily expanded military transport vehicle. He did it Friday shortly after the Anthony Sherman, the team’s fullback, showed up driving Clint Bowyer’s race car. Here’s a video of Colquitt rolling up.
Meanwhile, another Tennessee football veteran was more subtle when he rolled up. But he did manage to show his love for Rocky Top. Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Ramon Foster came in wearing a Vols hat.

Both Foster and Colquitt have had surprisingly long careers in the pros. So they are the perfect former Vols to make a splash at training camp. To be fair, Colquitt was an anomaly from the start since he was taken in the third round of the NFL Draft in as a punter.
However, Foster was an undrafted free agent after finishing his college career in 2008. Now, he’s become a 10-year veteran and an anchor for the Steelers. As a result, him wearing a UT hat helps to show how undrafted Vols can make in impact in the pros, something that has become a thing with him, Arian Foster and Justin Coleman in recent years.
Neither player has a ring yet, but both are hoping to be in the hunt this year. It’s exciting for Tennessee football, though, that they were able to make headlines heading into training camp this year. One represents the program as Punter U, and another represents the undrafted free agents who have notably represented UT in the pros.
