Ex-UH kicker, NFL star Jason Elam to retire Wednesday as a Bronco


Associated Press

DENVER Kicker Jason Elam will sign a one-day contract with the Denver Broncos so he can retire with the team he played with for most of his career.

Elam, who was drafted in the third round in 1993 after a stellar career at the University of Hawaii, played 15 seasons with Denver from 1993 to 2007 and shares the NFL record with Tom Dempsey for the longest field goal. Elam tied the record with a 63-yard field goal on Oct. 28, 1998.

Elam played two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons before being waived Dec. 1.
