        Makes sense. Prater was one definitely a MUST KEEP free agent.

          Broncos assigned the franchise tag to K Matt Prater.
          The move guarantees Prater roughly $2.6 million. He joins Cleveland's Phil Dawson and Cincinnati's Mike Nugent as kickers to be tagged. Jacksonville's Josh Scobee and Tampa Bay's Connor Barth are strong candidates to join them ahead of Monday's 4PM ET deadline. Prater converted four "walkoff" field-goals in 2011, and led the NFL in touchback percentage. Since 2008, he is 12-of-16 on field-goal attempts of 50 yards or longer.

            Good. Couldn't afford to let him leave. Now we got Bunkley to keep too.

              Pay da man.
              Decimating the competition, leaving in the wake a blind ambition.

                I think a lifetime pass to Shotgun Willie's would have been more than adequate...

                            I always wondered if it made sense to franchise him as early as possible before the other kickers got franchised, thereby (in theory) reducing the average salary. The average salary has to be based on previous year (since upcoming year would be a circular loop of sorts) and surely those guys were paid less than the avg of the top 5...

                            I guess the other part is that Prater would have to sign it.

                              I have absolutely no idea why we didn't just sign him

                              Ultimately gives us more cap room and secures our damn good kicker ...

                              Kinda dumb if you ask me
