-Saw this to a lesser extent when the Chiefs cut Succop. Purely a cost-saving measure. Despite the less-than-stellar play from McM so far, they apparently think he's 'good enough'.

We'll see come playoff time if this comes back to bite them.

That was a cute little press release that made no mention of that fact that Prater is a drunk.

Of course not - and I don't expect the Denver website to make mention of it - so I wasn't actually surprised.

I was simply posting in jest that it doesn't shock me even a little that they released him. I'd have done the same.

I'd rather have a slightly less competent kicker than one that has multiple DUI's

Eh. Who could resist getting drunk at one of the better strip clubs in Denver and trying to bang a stripper? Just dumb luck a hotel security guard watched him hit a car and run off. Bet they won't cut Welker even though he was caught doing club drugs.

Wouldnt mind the Browns signing him.

Getting popped once? I get it. Mistakes happen. I will never undstand it - but I realize it is reality.

Hell Gordon got his - and even though his BAC was only .09 - you need to be smarter.

Multiple times? My symapthy is gone.

Maybe the Lions can pick up Prater. That would be great.

I agree. These guys get away with a lot. Most of it will never be known, swept under the rug. I also heard from a very close source to the Broncos that Prater was caught with alcohol in his system numerous times after agreeing to not drink. Those violations were, of course over-looked because of how good the Broncos were doing the past few years.

Agreed

They originally had him outta college. I honestly thought he had a shot at replacing Hanson back then

I think he was. Manning probably buys the rounds but he's smart enough to get a ride home. That's why he calls them idiot kickers.

The Rotoworld blurb seems to imply the move was over money, not Prater's drinking. Basically they get a kicker who's been kicking well for a fraction of the price.

I'm sure it was a combination of.

Saving money? Good thing.
Getting rid of a drunk that just got off a 4 game suspension? Good thing.
Having a decent enough kicker to take his place? Good thing.
