ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Mike Pouncey Jersey . - Just 300 days after putting his name in the record books with the longest field goal ever, Matt Prater is history.At least in Denver.The Broncos cut ties Friday with the eighth-year kicker whos about to come off his four-game suspension.That means first-year kicker Brandon McManus has turned his temp job with the AFC champs into a full-time one.From the moment the Giants traded him to the Broncos in late August, McManus looked at Denver not as a stopover but as a destination. He said last month that his aim was to convince the Broncos he, and not Prater, was their man.Still, he was surprised hed done just that.I mean, Matt had a great year last year and hes done very well for himself. I still consider him in the top three kickers in the NFL, McManus said. Just the chance the Broncos are giving me (shows) the confidence they have in me and Im excited with that opportunity.GM John Elway said releasing Prater, the longest-tenured member of the team, was a very difficult football decision.But perhaps an easy financial choice: Prater was due $2.294 million in base salary this season and $3.25 million next year. McManus is making $420,000 this season and $510,000 next year.Thats a difference of more than $4.6 million, money that could come in handy as the Broncos turn their attention to long-term deals with Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Chris Harris Jr.McManus, Elway said, has earned the opportunity to continue kicking for our team with how well hes played to start the season. He has a very strong leg and we have confidence in him on both field goals and kickoffs.This summer, McManus pushed Giants incumbent Josh Brown just as he had Adam Vinatieri in Indy a year earlier. By sticking with McManus, the Broncos owe New York a seventh-round draft choice in 2015.Prater had given the Broncos reason to fret not only with his continued slip-ups but also with a poor performance in the preseason, something he blamed on his pending punishment weighing on him.Prater has been in the NFLs substance-abuse program, which includes alcohol, since a DUI arrest on Aug. 12, 2011. He was originally facing a ban for a full season but his lawyer negotiated a four-game ban instead.Prater said he realized one more strike meant hed face sitting out an entire calendar year when he had some beers not long after the Super Bowl.Why did I risk it? Prater said back on Aug. 25. I made a mistake. I dont have an excuse for it. I screwed up and now Im paying the price for it.That price got heavier Friday.Prater led the league last year by making 25 of 26 field goals, including a record-setting 64-yarder against Tennessee. He also led the NFL with 81 kickoff touchbacks.Prater missed two of four field goal attempts in the preseason, including a 49-yarder in an 18-17 loss to Houston after learning before kickoff that hed be suspended.McManus didnt face a clutch kick in Denvers first three games, but he did everything he was asked, making a trio of short field goals and all eight of his extra points. He also allowed just two returns on 16 kickoffs.Ive been very impressed with him, coach John Fox said. Hes got great potential. Hes a great young kicker.Broncos holder Britton Colquitt said Prater wont be out of a job for long.I think there will be at least 20 teams trying to put offers in, Colquitt said. And hell be able to have his choice, because hes that good. No one can argue with that. Hes probably just in the middle of his career. He could be at Kansas City or Oakland or San Diego.Some fans took to Twitter to criticize the Broncos for jettisoning Prater when they stuck by two front office executives who were arrested on drunken driving charges in 2013, one of whom is serving a work-release jail sentence.Anytime you make football decisions in an organization, especially with somebody thats been with you for a period of time like Matt, its always difficult, Fox said. But its always a football decision, whats going to give us the best chance in our opinion. And I wish Matt nothing but the best moving forward.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Nate Allen Jersey . - The Seattle Sounders busy off-season continues with the team acquiring defender Chad Marshall from the Columbus Crew in exchange for a 2015 third-round pick and allocation money.

A fairly even contest between the two rivals was turned on its head in the 39th minute when United defender Chris Smalling picked up a second yellow card for a late challenge on Citys James Milner. Aguero then provided the one moment of magic to separate the sides in the second half, keeping City in third place and within six points of leaders Chelsea. Smalling picked up his first booking on the half-hour mark when he blocked an attempted clearance from City goalkeeper Joe Hart as the netminder tried to punt the ball upfield. And just nine minutes later, Smalling was off after he came in late on Milner on the left wing with the City man trying to get into the penalty area. The home side piled on the pressure after the break, and things got even worse for United when defender Marcos Rojo had to be taken off the field on a stretcher after attempting a sliding challenge and injuring his shoulder. This left United with Michael Carrick and 19-year-old Paddy McNair in the center of defense, and City took advantage in the 63rd as Gael Clichy got into the area on the left and pulled the ball back for Aguero to turn home from 10 yards with a first-time shot. Bob Griese Jersey. United didnt go quietly as Robin van Persie had a close-range effort kept out from a tight angle by the leg of Hart, who produced an even better save on Angel Di Maria a few minutes later. But City was able to see out the rest of the game to claim their fourth straight derby victory over United, the first time that has happened for 44 years. Sundays other match saw Tottenham rally for a 2-1 win at Aston Villa as Spurs scored twice in the final six minutes. Andreas Weimann fired Villa ahead in the 16th minute, but the home side was reduced to 10 men in the 65th when Christian Benteke received a straight red card. Nacer Chadli finally equalized in the 84th for Tottenham when he arrived at the back post to score on a corner kick, while Harry Kane netted the winner in the 90th minute as his free kick took a wicked deflection and found its way past goalkeeper Brad Guzan.
