ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– The Broncos have reached a deal with their kicker after extended negotiations.
Broncos President of Football Operations John Elway tweeted the update on the negotiations with Brandon McManus on Monday afternoon.
Elway stated that “Brandon’s made a lot of big kicks & is an important weapon for our team!”
The deal keeps McManus in Denver for four more years, something the kicker had been seeking.
McManus was the last restricted free agent in the league to sign his tender this summer . He made $600,000 last year and will earn $2.75 million this season. The new contract adds three years and is worth $11.25 million with $6 million guaranteed, according to ESPN.
McManus is a fourth-year pro whose 84.8 percent conversion rate on field goals is tops in team history. He made 29 of 34 field goals last year.
His teammates named McManus their special teams captain last week.
