The Denver Broncos and kicker Matt Prater agreed on a four-year deal Monday.  Terms of the deal are now available.

Prater’s deal is worth $13 million — including a $3 million signing bonus, according to The Denver Post.  That’s $3.25 million per season for those doing the math at home.

With a new deal, Prater is now the fifth-highest paid kicker in the league annually, behind Sebastian Janikowski ($4M), Phil Dawson ($3.81M), Stephen Gostkowski ($3.4M) and Connor Barth ($3.3M).  Prater is now also one of nine kickers in the NFL earning $3 million or more per season.

“I’m very thankful and gracious and ready to prove myself and why I got a long‐term contract. I need to show everyone that I’m worth it,” Prater told the media via conference call on Monday.  “I’m really excited to get back to work.”

Prater’s teammates are also happy to have him back.  Fifth-year linebacker Wesley Woodyard tweeted the image seen to the right with the caption, “Good to have the real Prater back because our statue wasnt holding up… Congrats and welcome back!”

Congrats, indeed.  We were kinda hoping we wouldn’t have to rely on that Adi Kunalic guy.

    Why are you trying to extend the length of the abbreviation for million?????!!!!!!! ”
    mill”? Are you serious?? Didn’t think we are smart enough to figure out “mil” or even the old “M”???? I’m puttin’ my foot down. Times are tough enough without having to memorize someone else’s little book of abbreviations. This had better stop!

    Sorry bad day. Kids and wives. What am I, a bank?

    Your rant while being pointless was also wrong…

    A mil is a thousandth of a cent

    The good old “M” actually is a thousand so you probably were shooting for “m”

    And (sorry Jon) a mill is a thousandth of an inch

    So everyone who read it knew what he really meant and saying your stupidity was smarter than the author’s is really quite silly, don’t ya think?

    Elway: “Matt…sign the damn contract. For the sake of your cholesterol…SIGN IT!”
    Matt: “I’m trying Mr. Elway but I seem to have misplaced the pen.”
    Elway: “Matt…it is lodged in the crease of your hand-lard.” *facepalm*
