Jason Elam to retire as a Bronco

After 17 years in the NFL, Jason Elam is going to retire - as a Bronco. Today he signed a one day contract with Denver. He'll hang up the cleats as a Denver Bronco.

Jason Elam played in 236 games for Denver -- a franchise record -- and his 15 seasons as a Bronco are tied with Tom Nalen for the second-highest total in team history behind John Elway.

Elam joined the team in 1993, in every single game he played, he scored at least one point. He is fifth place all time in most points scored and most field goals made. He also holds the league record with 16 consecutive seasons with 100 or more points and he made what is tied for the longest field goal in NFL history -- 63 yards.

Through his long NFL Career, he made the Pro Bowl three times, was voted a second-team All-Pro on three occasions and was named the NFL Special Teams Player of the Year in 2001. But above all that, he won two Super Bowls, and 152 wins in a Broncos uniform -- the second-highest total in team history behind Elway.

He'll be eligible for the Broncos Ring of Fame in 2015. He scored 1,983 points in his career.

He is a class act guy, and the Broncos are very classy for doing this. Elam will always be a Bronco!
