Broncos release Connor Barth; Brandon McManus wins job as PK
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2015) The Broncos released kicker Connor Barth on Wednesday. Barth's departure solidifies Brandon McManus as the starting placekicker for the Broncos.

Barth supplanted McManus as the kicker on field goals and extra points after 10 games in 2014. Barth hit 15 of 16 field goals down the stretch, but McManus was added back to the roster after Barth struggled on kickoffs in his first game. 

Although, special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis studied what plagued McManus as a rookie and feels his struggles were easily explained.

"He's just like any other player -- young," DeCamillis said Aug. 18, per the team's official website. "Unfortunately, you look at kickers and they should make everything, right, whoever they are. If they haven't done it a bunch yet, they're going to have those hiccups. You have to be able to come back from it and hopefully he did."

McManus connected on 9 of 13 field goals last season. He was 41 for 41 on extra points.
