Broncos pick up kicker from Giants

Aug. 26, 2014 at 6:05 PM   |   Comments

The Denver Broncos filled a void at kicker on Tuesday, acquiring Brandon McManus from the New York Giants in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2015 draft.

McManus will likely handle the kicking duties while Matt Prater serves a four- game suspension for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Prater is eligible to return after the Broncos' Oct. 5 game against Arizona.

McManus was set to be released by the Giants on Tuesday. He connected on both of his field goal attempts and recorded touchbacks on 10-of-11 kickoffs during the preseason.

The Temple product spent the 2013 preseason with Indianapolis.

Denver also waived kicker Mitch Ewald, an undrafted rookie from Indiana, to open a roster spot for McManus.
