Broncos trade for K McManus, waive Ewald

Posted Aug 26, 2014

The Broncos traded a conditional seventh-round pick to the Giants for kicker Brandon McManus and waived kicker Mitch Ewald on Tuesday.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos have traded a conditional seventh-round pick to the Giants for kicker Brandon McManus and waived kicker Mitch Ewald, the team announced Tuesday.

In seven career preseason games, McManus is 3-for-3 on field goals (with all kicks from 46 yards or farther), 4-for-4 on extra points and has 18 touchbacks on 25 kickoffs. Two of his extra points came from the 33-yard line that the NFL experimented with for the first two weeks of the preseason.

To make room for McManus on the roster, the team waived Ewald. Ewald was 1-for-2 on field goals this preseason, missing from 36 yards against the Texans on Saturday, and 5-for-5 on extra points, with two touchbacks on eight kickoffs.

McManus, a first-year kicker from Temple, signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent in April of 2013 but was waived in late August. He signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants after the 2013 season ended.

He received the 2012 College Football Performance Awards Specialist Trophy as the nation's best overall kicker his senior year. He also served as the team's punter, with a 45.4-yard average on 54 punts as a senior.
