«Brandon has been a key player and presence with the Broncos for nearly a decade, making outstanding contributions to our team and community,» Paton said. «Becoming one of the most productive kickers in the NFL, Brandon made so many game-changing shots for this franchise over the years as a Super Bowl champion and team captain.
«He will always hold a special place in Denver Broncos history. We thank Brandon for all he did for the Broncos, and we wish him and his extended family the best in the future.»

McManus went 28 of 36 (77.8%) on field goal attempts for the anemic Broncos offense last season. It was his lowest percentage since 2017 when he converted 75% of his kicks.
He was a perfect 10-of-10 from 40-49 yards, but was 6-of-7 from under 30 yards, 4-of-6 from 30-39 yards, and 8-of-13 from 50-plus yards.
McManus, who turns 32 in July, would have counted $4.98 million toward the Broncos’ salary cap this season. He had two years left on a four-year extension he received in 2020.
Since being traded to the Broncos from the New York Giants in 2014, McManus had become a team captain and a well-respected member of the Denver community off the field.
