Informed of release
The Broncos are releasing McManus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 31-year-old has spent his entire career in Denver, playing 144 of a possible 146 regular-season games over nine years. McManus was scheduled for non-guaranteed base salaries of $3.65 million in 2023 and $3.85 million in 2024, so his release is likely about cap space more than performance. While his career 81.4 percent success rate on FG attempts is subpar by modern standards, McManus has attempted a ton of long-distance kicks due to his strong leg and the altitude in Denver, with tries of 50-plus yards accounting for 26.3 percent of his career volume (and 62.7 percent of his misses). It's unclear who will replace him in Denver, but with teams like the Cowboys and Rams lacking established kicking options, he may not be out of work for long.
