Buccaneers re-sign the legendary Connor Barth

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with Connor Barth, according to Greg Auman. Barth was cut by the Denver Broncos earlier this week, mostly because he doesn't have the leg to handle kickoffs. Barth will compete with Patrick Murray in a repeat of last year's preseason battle, although this time Barth doesn't have a ridiculously expensive contract basically guaranteeing he'll be cut. Barth spent five seasons with the Bucs, converting 84.3% of his kicks over that time, kicking several game-winners and setting team records. Barth played five games for the Broncos last season in...

Broncos release kicker Connor Barth to make room for newly signed guard Evan Mathis

Denver's kicking situation has become more clear. Denver released kicker Connor Barth Wednesday to make room for newly signed Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis, according to Broncos senior digital reporter Andrew Mason. The news comes a few weeks after rumors emerged that the Broncos were not happy with their kickers. Barth has been good on field goals for Denver (15-of-16 last season plus all 15 PATs), but the team wants a kicker who also kicks off well. Brandon McManus, who was excellent on kickoffs last season, has seemingly won the kicker job. The team must feel that McManus has improved as...

Former NFL GM includes Connor Barth on ultimate 53-man team, excludes Chris Harris Jr.

Chris Harris Jr. has been snubbed again. Former NFL G.M. Mark Dominik recently put together an "ultimate 53-man roster" for the upcoming season. The catch: his team had to be under the salary cap for 2015. Dominik was the Buccaneers' G.M. from 2009 to 2013. Kicker Connor Barth was the lone Broncos player to make the team (subscription required). I had Barth in Tampa, and trust me, he's a clutch kicker. That's a trait you really appreciate as a general manager. Every field goal is tough to watch, but it got much easier when he was kicking. Dominik's decision to carry Barth is an...

Rumor: Broncos not happy with kickers Connor Barth and Brandon McManus?

Is there going to be a shake-up with our kicking specialists? Are both Denver Broncos kickers on the roster bubble? According to local Denver radio man Kevin Kissner, you bet. According to sources the Broncos don't have their week 1 kicker on the roster. McManus and Barth have not performed well in camp. Den's mad — Kevin Kissner (@KissnerRadio) August 12, 2015 Why it makes sense On one hand, we have Connor Barth who is fantastically accurate for field goal kicks, but doesn't get enough distance or hang time on kickoffs (this is a very risky combination). On the other hand we have...
