The Denver Broncos have traded for New York Giants kicker Brandon McManus, ESPN reported on Tuesday.
Look, the Denver Broncos not the dregs of the NFL. They are not, say, the Raiders, the Jaguars, any of those teams that consistently disappoint.
The Broncos’ options include keeping rookie Mitch Ewald or another young, cheap kicker, or signing an experienced one — possibly Jay Feely.
Broncos placekicker Matt Prater apologized on Monday for a DUI that resulted in a four-game suspension to start the NFL season.
Matt Prater’s lawyer said the NFL initially threatened a yearlong suspension before agreeing to ban the Denver Broncos kicker four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
The Broncos are loaded with offensive talent, and those looking to draft studs for their fantasy football teams need look no further than these Broncos starters.
Peyton Manning threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Julius Thomas and dominated in his two series, leading the Denver Broncos past the San Francisco 49ers 34-0 on Sunday to spoil the NFL debut at sparkling $1.2 billion Levi’s Stadium.
Let’s not kid ourselves: a kicker is not going to win you a fantasy title. But in a tight match-up, you’ll take all the points you can get. All of these players are last-round selections, but you might as well have a strategy for crafting your kicker rankings.
As far as Peyton Manning is concerned, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders isn’t the only offensive reinforcement summoned to help Denver get another crack at winning the Super Bowl.
If the Super Bowl comes down a last-second field goal, might as well head for the fridge. If your team has the ball, the question is not whether it’s going to be good – it will – but whether to pop the cork on that bottle of champagne you’ve been saving for some big occasion.
