3/31/2010 - NFL Jason Elam Denver Broncos + more

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Jason Elam spent the last two years of a 17-year NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons. But he retired Wednesday as a Denver Bronco.

Nearly four months after being waived by the Falcons, Elam signed a one-day contract with Denver and retired. The Broncos drafted him in the third round in 1993.

Elam, 40, was a member of the Broncos' two Super Bowl championship teams.

The three-time Pro Bowler finished his career ranked fifth in NFL history with 1,983 points scored and 436 field goals made. He is the all-time leader with 16 seasons of 100 or more points.

He also shares an NFL record with Tom Dempsey of New Orleans for the longest field goal (63 yards).
