Per Lindsay Jones, Matt Prater has signed his restricted free agent tender keeping him Denver. Prater was easily the hottest commodity on the kicker market but teams knew the Broncos were going to pay to keep him and with a 2nd round pick coupled to that salary it was a price no other club was willing to pay.
After a shaky 1st season as the squad’s starting kicker and having to live in the newly formed shadow of Jason Elam, Prater went on to have a fantastic 2nd season and continued to improve the 3rd . He finished his 2010 outing with an 88.9 Field Goal percentage with a long of 59.
The now veteran kicker out of Central Florida has been with the Broncos for four years prior to signing his tender this afternoon.
