Brandon McManus got the extension he’s been waiting for.
Ahead of the team’s regular-season opener Monday against the Chargers, Broncos general manager John Elway announced that the team has signed the kicker to a new four-year deal that will keep him in Denver through the 2020 season.
U.S. District Court Judge Amos Mazzant III last week weighed in on Elliott’s side, questioning in the fairness of the NFL’s disciplinary process.
“The NFL’s actions demonstrate that from the very beginning of the decision-making process, a cloud of fundamental unfairness followed Elliott,” Mazzant wrote in granting Elliott an injunction.
Robinson was hurt on the third play of Sunday’s game, after he caught a 17-yard pass from Blake Bortles on third-and-2 to convert the first down. He was unable to walk to the sideline and was immediately attended to by the Jaguars’ medical staff.
Robinson eventually walked off the field and was taken to the locker room to undergo further tests. He did not return.
Robinson is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the sides have had preliminary extension discussions.
Robinson, who has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in his three-plus seasons, is the Jaguars’ best receiver. His absence means the team will have to rely heavily on Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns, as well as veteran Arrelious Benn, who is one of the team’s core special-teams players. Additionally, undrafted rookie Keelan Cole likely will be more involved.
