Jay Feely and Barth were the only two tryouts reported on Monday, but it appears as though Barth was the more impressive of the two.

Barth, 28, signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina back in 2008. He later ended up in Tampa Bay where he remained for four years before the Buccaneers cut him loose at the start of the 2014 regular season.

Reports from Monday mentioned that the Broncos were set to hold tryouts this week after McManus continued to struggle in Week 12.

Denver elected to release veteran Matt Prater and go with McManus earlier in the season. On the season, McManus has converted 9 of 13 field goal attempts (69.2%) and has missed both of his attempts from 50 yards or more.—-

Prater was too successful. He had to be cut.
