Broncos re-sign Pro Bowl long snapper Kreiter

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Broncos Pro Bowl long snapper Casey Kreiter signed a one-year, $1 million contract to stay in Denver on Thursday.

The fourth-year pro from Iowa was set to become a restricted free agent next week.

Kreiter became the first long snapper in franchise history to earn a Pro Bowl berth last season after he snapped 146 times (85 punts, 35 extra points, 25 field goals and a fake punt) without an unplayable delivery.

Kreiter has appeared in 42 games for the Broncos the last three seasons. An All-Big Ten Conference selection at Iowa, he joined the NFL as a college free agent with Dallas in 2014 and competed in the Cowboys' training camp in 2014-15 before signing with Denver in 2016.
