Following an outstanding season in which he changed his kicking technique to improve his accuracy, McManus signed his exclusive rights free-agent tender to remain a Bronco in 2016. McManus, who made 86 percent of his 35 regular-season field-goal attempts and 100 percent of his 10 post-season field-goal tries, was a key factor in the Broncos' Super Bowl season. He was the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for October, during which time he made nine of 11 field-goal attempts -- including the game-winning 34-yarder in overtime against Cleveland -- and five extra-point attempts. It was an impressive turnaround for McManus after a 2014 season in which he hit just 69.2 percent of his field goal attempts. But last offseason, McManus took the time to retool his kicking technique, removing a "jab step" that caused accuracy issues. In addition to the benefits from playing in the high altitude, a Denver offense with questions at QB could lead to more field-goal attempts.
