Former Falcons kicker Jason Elam, who played at Brookwood High School, will sign a one-day contract with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday so he can retire as a Bronco, according to the team.
In 2008, Elam helped to stabilize the Falcons’ field goal kicking. Overall, he made 29 of 31 field attempts and was a major factor in the Falcons 11-5 season and trip to the wild-card round of the playoffs.
Last season, Elam developed a hitch in his kicking swing and struggled mightily. He made 12 of 19 field goals before being released on Dec. 1.
After playing for Hawaii in college, Elam played in a franchise-record 236 games for the Broncos.
Elam played 15 seasons for the Broncos from 1993 to 2007. He shares the record for the longest field goal in NFL history. He tied Tom Dempsey’s mark when he made a 63-yarder on Oct, 28, 1998.
