Jason Elam to call it a career as a member of the Broncos

via <a href=""></a>

Former Denver Broncos kicker Jason Elam, who played 15 seasons for the club from 1993-2007, will sign a one-day contract with the team Wednesday to officially retire as a Bronco.

Elam will be available to the media Wednesday at a 2 p.m. MDT press conference held in the team meeting room of the Broncos' training facility in Englewood, Colo.

The Broncos drafted Elam in the third-round in 1993, and Elam was a fixture in Denver until the end of the 2007 season, when Elam left as a free agent to play for the Atlanta Falcons.  

Elam was part of two Super Bowl champion teams in Denver, and also tied an NFL record by hitting a 63-yard field goal. He played in 236 games for the Broncos, more than any other player, and was part of 152 total wins - second only to John Elway in team history.

Elam retires with 1,983 points, and ranks fifth in made field goals (436) and fourth in made PATs (675).  One of the truly great Broncos, Jason Elam should one day see his name on the Ring of Fame.

Of late, Elam has become quite the author as well, writing a series of books about a football player that also fights terrorism.  His next offering is due out this fall.
