Broncos cut Matt Prater

The Denver Broncos cut kicker Matt Prater.

Prater's four-game suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy is over, but so is his tenure with the Broncos after 96 games and 141 field goals.

“Parting ways with Matt Prater—the longest-tenured player on our roster—was a very difficult football decision,” Broncos general manager John Elway said. “On behalf of our entire organization, I want to thank Matt for his seven seasons with the Broncos and wish him well going forward.

“Brandon McManus has earned the opportunity to continue kicking for our team with how well he’s played to start the season. He has a very strong leg and we have confidence in him on both field goals and kickoffs.”
