ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – A person with knowledge of the transactions says the Denver Broncos have switched kickers again, waiving rookie Brandon McManus and signing Connor Barth, who hasn't played since 2012.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Tuesday because the moves hadn't been announced. The Denver Post first reported the switch.
Barth, a five-year veteran, and 13-year pro Jay Feely worked out for the team Tuesday, 48 hours after McManus clanked a 33-yard field goal off an upright in Denver's 39-36 win over Miami.
The Broncos traded a seventh-round draft pick to the Giants for McManus in August after Matt Prater's suspension. They later released Prater, who signed with Detroit.
Solid on kickoffs, McManus was 9 for 13 on field goal attempts.
