Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the Giants will receive a conditional seventh-round draft pick from the Broncos in return for K Brandon McManus.
- However, the condition is that McManus must still be on the Broncos roster once Matt Prater, has served his suspension, which is unlike.
- Denver waived K Mitch Ewald on Tuesday.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Broncos are trading for Giants K Brandon McManus, who was going to be placed on waivers later today.
This is clearly an attempt by the Broncos to find a temporary replacement for K Matt Prater, whohas been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
We’ve seen a few deal in recent months were a team was about to release a player only for a trade to be consummated a few hours later.
McManus, 23, was battling with veteran K Josh Brown for t a roster spot and actually help up pretty well, so it will be interesting to see how does for the Broncos.
