McManus was the last member of the Broncos’ Super Bowl 50 championship team that defeated the Carolina Panthers. During the 2015-2016 playoffs, McManus went 10-10 in field goal attempts over three postseason games, including three field goal makes in Super Bowl 50.
“Brandon has been a key player and presence with the Broncos for nearly a decade, making outstanding contributions to our team and community,” General Manager George Paton said in a statement. “Developing into one of the NFL’s most productive kickers, Brandon made so many clutch kicks for this franchise over the years as a Super Bowl champion and team captain. He will always hold a special place in Denver Broncos history. We thank Brandon for all he did for the Broncos, and we wish him and his family the very best in the future.”

In nine seasons, McManus scored 946 points, the franchise’s second-leading scorer behind kicker Jason Elam. McManus owns the franchise record for most field goals of at least 50 yards with 32.
Last season, McManus underwent a down year, connecting 28 of his 36 field-goal attempts in 2022, which lowered his make percentage to under 80% for the first time since 2017.
One team that could have interest in McManus is the Dallas Cowboys, who did not re-sign Brett Maher after he missed five extra points in last year’s playoffs.
