Both of Brandon McManus' misses in the preseason finale were from 50-plus yards out.
Two days after landing in Denver via a trade with the Giants, McManus hit from 19 and 39 yards out and missed from 52 and 54. "Nerves weren't a factor," he said. "It's almost like getting a new driver (in golf). You have to go to the range a few times." McManus brings some risk as an unknown, but owners won't find more upside on the waiver wire. He has a massive leg and is kicking in Mile High for the league's most dominant offense. Sep 3 - 8:36 AM

Broncos acquired K Brandon McManus from the Giants in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

The Giants were going to cut McManus, so they do well to get something back. McManus has made both of his field goal attempts this preseason and produced 10 touchbacks on 11 kickoffs. He'll fill in for suspended Matt Prater.

Giants waived or released K Brandon McManus, CB Charles James, LB Spencer Adkins, CB Ross Weaver, CB Kyle Sebetic, DE Emmanuel Dieke, OG John Sullen, WR Travis Harvey, S C.J. Barnett, DT Everett Dawkins, and TE Jerome Cunningham.

McManus gave Josh Brown a run for his money, nailing 2-of-2 field goals with 10 touchbacks on kickoffs. He'll likely get a look from a kicker-needy team.
