Denver Broncos Sign Former Jaguars Kicker

The Denver Broncos have recently made changes to their kicker position.

The long-time kicker, Brandon McManus, who had been with the franchise since 2014, was released, and the team has opted to sign Elliott Fry, formerly with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fry, a product of the University of South Carolina, has made a limited number of NFL appearances, successfully converting five out of six career field goal attempts.

While Fry's signing puts him as the sole kicker on the Broncos' roster for now, it is expected that the team will seek additional competition in the near future. This decision comes as the Broncos aim to improve their kicking game after a challenging season for McManus in 2022.

Under the guidance of their new head coach, Sean Payton, the Broncos hope for an improved offensive performance, which could present favorable opportunities for their kickers. The altitude and thin air in Denver often work in favor of the kicking game, providing an added advantage for the players.

As the offseason progresses, it remains uncertain whether Fry will secure the starting kicker role or face competition during the summer. The Broncos' decision to bring in Fry indicates their willingness to explore options and potentially enhance their kicking game for the upcoming season.
