In his top career highlight so far, McManus played a crucial role in helping the Denver Broncos capture the NFL championship in Super Bowl 50. He kicked three field goals in as many attempts and added an extra point in the Broncos’ 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
McManus joined the Broncos’ active NFL roster in 2014 after playing four preseason games for the New York Giants. During his seven seasons with the Broncos, McManus became the third kicker in NFL history to make multiple field goals of 56 or more yards in the same game.
This season, he has earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in week 4 in a 37-28 win against the New York Jets and again in week 6 where he scored all of his team’s points in the Broncos’ 18-12 victory over the New England Patriots. McManus is 22-of-24 on field goals and 21-of-24 on extra points this season. In week 12, McManus hit the longest field goal of his career at 58 yards in a loss to the New Orleans Saints.
In September of this year, McManus signed a four-year, $17.2 million contract extension with the Broncos through the 2024 season.
Before his NFL career, he played NCAA Division 1 football for the Temple Owls’ team. As a senior in 2012, McManus earned All-Big East first-team honors after leading the team in scoring (74 points) after making 14 out of 17 field goals and 32 of 33 extra points. He holds the Temple career records for points scored, field goals made, field goals attempted, and punting average.
