ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have signed kicker Matt Prater to a new four-year deal, locking up one of the most powerful legs in NFL history.

Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced the deal Monday. Terms were not released.

Prater was a clutch performer for the Broncos down the stretch last season with four game-winning field goals. He had three straight weeks in which he kicked the winner on the game's final play, helping Tim Tebow and the Broncos go on a six-game winning streak that propelled them into the playoffs for the first time in six seasons.
