Former Broncos and Falcons kicker Jason Elam will announce his retirement from football on Wednesday.
Elam will sign a one-day contract with the Broncos, for whom he kicked from 1993-2007. Consistently among the highest fantasy scorers at his position over the course of his 17-year career, Elam will retire as one of the most accurate field goal kickers of his generation and the best in Broncos franchise history. His 1,983 total points and 436 field goals are both good for fifth all time. Tue, Mar 30, 2010 05:21:00 PM

Falcons released K Jason Elam.

Elam missed four field goals from 39 yards out or closer this season, including two in the last three weeks. He turns 40 in March and is no longer a reasonable option on kickoffs. Matt Bryant is the Falcons new kicker.

The Falcons are working out kickers Tuesday, but Jason Elam is expected to keep his job according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Elam has missed seven of his 19 field goals this season, including four from 39 yards out or less. Matt Bryant and Paul Edinger are expected in Atlanta Tuesday as Elam continues to skate on thin ice. He's not a fantasy option, especially with Matt Ryan and Michael Turner out indefinitely.

Falcons coach Mike Smith gave K Jason Elam a semi-vote of confidence Wednesday, saying Elam is "our kicker right now."

Until he misses another kick. Elam, who turns 40 in March, is just 10-of-16 on three-point tries this season and has missed one PAT. Despite kicking in a dome for a potent offense, he's not good enough for fantasy consideration.

Falcons coach Mike Smith suggested Tuesday that Jason Elam could be replaced on longer field goals after he missed two kicks against the Saints.

Smith mentioned punter Michael Koenen's history on long field-goal attempts, saying the kicking situation is "something we’ll always be evaluating." Elam hasn't been a reliable fantasy option this year, so owners should seek other options on the waiver wire this week.

Falcons K Jason Elam (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Falcons K Jason Elam (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Elam shanked two field goals in the opener, but looked fine in Week 2 and connected on all four of his PAT attempts. He plays in a high-octane offense and Sunday's tilt with the Patriots projects to be high scoring. He'll start.
