Broncos Offseason 2012: Kicker Matt Prater Skips Offseason Workouts

The Denver Broncos may have a brewing -- and uncommon -- controversy in their special teams department. According to The Denver Post, kicker Matt Prater is skipping the team's offseason workouts. The Broncos placed the franchise tag on their long-time place kicker this offseason, an action for which the kicker did not particularly express gratitude.

But according to Prater's agent, skipping the OTAs is not meant as a message to the Broncos leadership:

"There’s no message, it’s voluntary," said Frank Bauer, Prater’s agent.

And since he has not yet signed the franchise tender, Prater would additionally need to sign a waiver to participate in the OTAs:

The 28-year-old Prater owns a 78.4% field goal percentage, including an impressive 10 for 13 from beyond 50 yards.
