  Broncos | Brandon McManus welcomes competition    Fri Jun 21, 12:16 PM

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus says he is comfortable with free-agent PK Taylor Bertolet receiving an invitation to training camp. 'I've had another kicker in camp with me every other year,' McManus said recently. 'It's nothing that I'm not used to and it's always good to have someone competing against you. And it's not just (Bertolet). There are 31 other jobs out there and a bunch of others kicking as well.'

  Bears | Chicago unlikely to pursue Matt Bryant    Fri Jun 7, 06:39 PM

Free-agent PK Matt Bryant (Falcons) likely will not be an option for the Chicago Bears since he has not handled kickoff duties since 2008 and has not kicked for a cold-weather outdoor team since 2003, in the opinion of The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

Footballguys view: The Bears should wait until final cuts and add one of the kickers that loses a kicker battle, but performs well this summer. Bryant is proven, but it sounds like he would be a bad fit on the Bears.

Financial terms of the deals were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick out of Bowling Green, Miller is your classic fast/quick slot receiver. He is not afraid to go over the middle and can get open against tight coverage. We'll see if he can compete to be an Adam Humphries-like player for the Bucs.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see what Hart can do in the pros. He's got electric toes and can get open with quickness and suddenness when he makes a break. Hart is good after the catch and could be a nice underneath option in the Colts WR corps.

  Ravens | Justin Tucker signing new deal    Wed Apr 24, 11:04 AM

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker agreed to a four-year, $23.05 million extension Wednesday, April 24, which makes him the highest-paid kicker in the league. He receives $12.5 million fully guaranteed in the first two years and an $8 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Kickers have enough influence on games to merit this kind of pay when they are as good as Tucker. This could set the upper limits for 49er franchise tag recipient Robbie Gould, especially if he ends up back with Bears.

  49ers | Robbie Gould asks for a trade    Tue Apr 23, 02:05 PM

San Francisco 49ers PK Robbie Gould, who has been offered the team's franchise tag but has yet to sign it, has informed the team he will not negotiate or sign a long-term deal with them and wants to be traded, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Gould is wrangling to go back to the Bears, who are in kicker hell right now. He would need a new contract, which the Bears will need to maneuver to afford, and the Bears would need to give up draft capital, which they have little of this year. The 49ers have Jon Brown on hand to handle kicking duties until this gets sorted out.

  Raiders | Three ERFAs sign their tenders    Mon Apr 15, 05:29 PM

Exclusive rights free agents Oakland Raiders WR Marcell Ateman, PK Daniel Carlson and OT Justin Murray signed their one-year tenders Monday, April 15.

Footballguys view: We've got an appreciation for Ateman in dynasty formats. A seventh-round pick for the Raiders out of Oklahoma State in 2018, Ateman has size and ball skills that stand out. He's not a refined route runner and needs to consistently use his size to his advantage in order to maximize his potential as a pro. We'll continue to monitor him in deep dynasty leagues.
