The Broncos have made a change at kicker after Brandon McManus missed his fourth attempt of the season in Sunday’s win over the Dolphins.

McManus, 23, was given the Broncos kicking duties after Matt Prater was suspended to start the season. Rather than bring back Prater at the end of his suspension the Broncos opted to keep McManus. Prater went on to sign with the Lions.

On Tuesday the Broncos signed former Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth to a deal. The 28-year-old Brth missed the 2013 season after suffering torn Achilles tendon. During the 2012 season he was 28-of-33 making 12-of-13 from 40 to 49 yards. Barth was released by the Buccaneers in training camp.
