BRONCOS RELEASE K MATT PRATER

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Friday released kicker Matt Prater, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

“Parting ways with Matt Prater—the longest-tenured player on our roster—was a very difficult football decision,” Elway said. “On behalf of our entire organization, I want to thank Matt for his seven seasons with the Broncos and wish him well going forward.

Brandon McManus has earned the opportunity to continue kicking for our team with how well he’s played to start the season. He has a very strong leg and we have confidence in him on both field goals and kickoffs.”

Prater appeared in 96 regular-season games for Denver from 2007-13, connecting on 141-of-170 (.829) field goal attempts and 259-of-261 (.992) extra point attempts for 682 total points. He registered 262 touchbacks on 497 kickoffs (.527) for the Broncos while posting eight special-teams tackles.

Signed by the Broncos from Miami’s practice squad on Dec. 19, 2007, Prater is in his eighth NFL season and attended the University of Central Florida.
