The Broncos will kick off their 2017 season on Monday night against the Chargers and they took care of some other business a few hours before the game gets underway.

General Manager John Elway announced that the team has signed kicker Brandon McManus to a new four-year deal. Elway didn’t offer any details about the financial terms of the deal. PFT has learned, via a league source, that it is a three-year extension worth $11.254 million with $6 million in fully-guaranteed money. (The total guarantee, including injury-only, is $8.25 million.)

McManus signed a restricted free agent tender this offseason that left him set to make $2.746 million in salary this year. There was talk at the time of his signing and when the Broncos released safety T.J. Ward that a longer commitment to McManus might be coming.

Elway called McManus “an important weapon” for the Broncos and he’s made 68-of-82 field goals over his three seasons with the team. He’s also made 108-of-110 extra points over that span.

    Of all the things they need, they resign their kicker. That will get you back into the playoffs. Good Job!!!


    Yes. Having someone who can routinely score 3 points from 50+ yards…so useless

  3. Kickers are so underappreciated. Just imagine how many Super Bowl Championships would be held by another team if they didn’t miss key kicks in the regular season, playoffs, or Super Bowl.

  4. This Bronco fan would like to ask T J Ward if he knows where Elway got the money to sign McManus.

    Regardless, it still appears like a good move. Brandon has hit them all in preseason and once made a 70 yarder in practice. (NO need to make the “Practice doesn’t count” argument. Everybody knows that already.)

  5. TJ Ward couldn’t get healthy, missed too many games over the past few years.

    Injuries = Slow = Liability
