Broncos Free Agency 2012: Matt Prater Expresses Desire To Return To Denver

It would be surprising if the Denver Broncos didn't sign kicker Matt Prater to a new deal soon, according to sources that have spoken with Denver radio host Brandon Spano. Prater has apparently expressed an interest in eschewing free agency to return to the team that he's played for since 2007.

Prater, 27, went undrafted after playing in college for Central Florida, first being signed by the Detroit Lions in 2006 as an undrafted free agent. He failed to play for them or his next team, the Miami Dolphins, before finally making his NFL debut with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007.

That stint didn't last long before Prater lost the job, though, ultimately landing with the Broncos in the middle of the 2007 season. By 2008, he was the full-time kicker with the departure of Jason Elam, and he's ultimately emerged as a very solid option at the position.
