Elam isn't planning to continue playing football

After 17 NFL seasons, kicker Jason Elam is moving on to the next phase of his life.

This phase will include leading a group trip to Jerusalem in November according to the Denver Post, indicating that the former Bronco and Falcon isn’t planning to be in the NFL this year.

Mike Klis writes that Elam, whose fourth book is due out in November, would be a worthy choice for the Broncos Ring of Fame.  Elam played 15 years in Denver, making three Pro Bowls.

He was released by the Falcons last December.

  1. OH HOW THE FOUL WINDS OF LATE NOVEMBER BLEW ACROSS THE MIGHTY FALCONS CAVIAR DREAMS IN A CYCLONE OF DEVASTATION. Mile High hero Elam blew a 34 yard game clincher in the 4th quarter in mid-November vs. Carolina as screaming sheep exploded in a volcanic lava flow of ecstasy up in the stands of Insolvent Bank of America Stadium and the next week missed another against the NY football Giants in a 3 point loss. No more Elam stories ggg.

  2. Isn’t he the guy who went hunting and shot giraffes and thought he was a big man for doing it? Note, giraffes are more docile than cows.

  3. Wow, what douche bags you all are.
    This guy tied the NFL’s longest field goal en route to his second super bowl ring. God damn, at least try to show that you’re a good person.
    I guess when Peyton Manning retires we’ll have to hear how much his career sucked from you guys too.

  4. 9-9 in the playoffs, his one Superbowl victory came against a team that had Rex friggin’ Grossman, and Manning was awful in the postseason that year. Manning doesn’t suck, but he’s almost as overrated as Britfar.

  5. HA HA HA HA HA HA
    You guys have never heard of “Monday Night Jihad” by Jason Elam? Well fortunately for you i will copy and paste the product description of the book from a certain book selling website. Here it is:
    “He thought his deadliest enemy knelt across the line of scrimmage. He was wrong! After a tour of duty in Afghanistan, Riley Covington is living his dream as a professional linebacker when he comes face to face with a radical terrorist group on his own home turf. Drawn into the nightmare around him, Riley returns to his former life as a member of a special ops team that crosses oceans in an attempt to stop the escalating attacks. But time is running out, and it soon becomes apparent that the terrorists are on the verge of achieving their goal–to strike at the very heart of America. This softcover edition also includes a teaser chapter of the next Riley Covington thriller.
    Written by a member of the NFL; gives readers an insider look at the world of professional athletes and military intelligence. Examines the challenges of homeland security in large-venue events. Explores the tension between the desire for revenge and the constraints of the Christian faith, especially as it relates to Islam. Jason Elam has recently returned from Iraq, where he visited and supported the troops. “
