Broncos franchise Prater
Add another name to the list of kickers who are getting the franchise tag, as the Denver Broncos are putting the designation on kicker Matt Prater via John Elway's Twitter account.
Prater joins a growing list of kickers who have been franchised this off-season, including Cleveland's Phil Dawson for the second straight year, Cincinnati's Mike Nugent and Jacksonville's Josh Scobee.
Prater played co-star in a number of Tim Tebow's dramatic comeback victories this season, including the thrilling 13-10 overtime win against the Chicago Bears. In all, Prater was 19 of 25 on field goal tries in 2011.
