Jacksonville Jaguars sign ex-Broncos kicker Brandon McManus


The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Thursday they have signed veteran kicker Brandon McManus to a one-year deal – less than two days after the Denver Broncos’ released him. ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted: “Former Broncos’ kicker Brandon McManus is signing a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, per source. McManus was released Tuesday and found work less than 48 hours later.”  The Jaguars waived kicker Riley Patterson in a corresponding transaction.

The Broncos cut McManus on Tuesday, ending his nine-year tenure with the AFC West franchise. McManus had been with the club since 2014 and was the last member of the Super Bowl 50 World Champion squad. McManus made 77.8% of his field goals and 92.6% of his extra points over 17 games last season for the Broncos, and made 81.4% of his field goals and 96.9% of his extra points in 144 appearances for the Broncos.

The Jaguars started organized team activities Monday and resumed the sessions Thursday. They will meet for additional organized team activities Tuesday and Wednesday, June 2 and June 5 through 8.
