Veteran stalwart Brandon McManus has re-upped with the Denver Broncos.
The franchise announced on Friday that the 29-year-old kicker agreed to terms on a four-year extension that would keep him in Colorado through the 2024 season. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2020 campaign.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the deal is worth $17.2 million with $9.5M fully guaranteed, per McManus' agent Drew Rosenhaus.
An undrafted prospect out of Temple, McManus started all 16 games for the fifth straight year in 2019, and posted one of his best seasons, converting 85.3 percent (29/34) of his field goals.
Since joining the Broncos via a preseason trade with the Giants in 2014, McManus has proven to be a very reliable leg, most notably in 2016 during the team's Super Bowl 50 run. His clutch gene was on full display when he went three-of-three on field goal attempts and iced Denver's 24-10 win over Carolina with a late extra point. His 10 postseason FGs also set a franchise record; the team has not returned to the playoffs since that magical campaign.
In addition to becoming a champion in 2015, McManus made more NFL history that season when he became the third kicker (Sebastian Janikowski and Greg Zuerlein) to convert multiple field goals of 56 or more yards in the same contest. His 81.5 career field goal conversion rate (141/173) ranks second in team history, just behind long-time starter Matt Prater, who carried the mantle for a little over seven seasons prior to McManus' arrival.
