Tom Rouen started his career at Colorado State University in 1987 before transferring to the University of Colorado.

Rouen's most famous punt came in the final minute of the 1991 Orange Bowl when Raghib Ismail returned the punt 91 yards for a touchdown. The return was called back on a clipping penalty and Colorado won the game 10-9 and a share of the 1990 National Championship. He signed with the Ohio Glory of the World League of American Football and made the All-World League team. He then joined the Denver Broncos before the start of the 1993 NFL season and played for the Broncos for eight seasons, in the process winning Super Bowl XXXII and Super Bowl XXXIII. He appeared in every game with the Broncos. As of 2017's NFL off-season, Tom Rouen held at least 3 Broncos franchise records, including: career punts (641), punt yards (28,146), and punts in a playoff game (nine on December 31, 2000 against the Baltimore Ravens; with Britton Colquitt).
