ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Tuesday signed veteran free-agent kicker Connor Barth and waived kicker Brandon McManus, it was announced.

Barth (5-11, 200 pounds) is a seventh-year player who spent time with Kansas City (2008) and Tampa Bay (2009-12) after entering the NFL with the Chiefs as a college free agent in 2008 from the University of North Carolina.

In 66 career regular-season games, he has connected on 101-of-120 (.842) field goals and 134-of-134 extra point attempts totaling 437 points.

He made 91-of-108 (.843) field goals in four seasons with the Bucs as the most accurate kicker in franchise history. He spent the 2013 season on Tampa Bay’s reserve/non-football injury list with a torn right Achilles tendon before being waived by the club following the 2014 preseason.

Barth appeared in 47 games during his collegiate career for the Tar Heels and converted 54-of-71 (.761) field goals and 103-of-109 (.945) extra point attempts for 265 points. He earned first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors following his senior season in which he made 19-of-22 (.864) field goals and led the team with 78 points.

A graduate of John T. Hoggard High School in Wilmington, N.C., Barth was named a first-team All-American by USA Today and set the state prep record with 38 career field goals made. He was born on April 11, 1986.
