There's more than a handful of teams who'd duke it out for Brandon McManus right now.

The Broncos' specialist has epitomized clutch kicking through four weeks and has evolved into the NFL's best field-goal booter, according to Pro Football Focus.

McManus is perfect on field goal and elongated extra point attempts. The same can't be said for some of his kicking peers league-wide.

He's also kicked 19 touchbacks in 23 attempts — good for second in the league to Baltimore's Justin Tucker.

McManus was nearly cut out of training camp this summer. The Broncos stuck with him; now, he's continuing the franchise's storied kicking legacy.
