The Falcons will meet with Jason Elam next week

Even if his range is only 80% of what it was, he can still hit from 50 yards ;)

I would have to think kicking in Denver helps his range though.

Elam was a premier kicker just a couple years ago, I wonder what kind of salary he could command?

I would really like to see a long-term option brought in, but don't want to see any draft pick prior to the 6th round spent on a kicker

The greatest kicker in Broncos history is about to become free agent. Jason Elam told me Thursday night the Broncos have not offered him a contract and he doesn t expect anything by the 10:00 MDT deadline.

My agent and the Broncos talked today, but nothing worth reporting. Elam said at 8:45 Thursday night. Elam, who is one of the last links to the Broncos Super Bowl titles, kicked 4 game winning field goals this past season.

If the Broncos don t eventually make him an offer, the 37 year old would consider retirement. He is hesitant to move his family out of Denver, although, he would consider playing in his hometown of Atlanta.

i really think that our new GM does not want to us a pick on a kicker in this draft...maybe in 2 or 3 years but not now...i think that he has players in mind that he want with that late round pick

Or, if he is planning on drafting a kicker, perhaps he wants something dependable in case the draftee doesn't work out?
