Hopefully this gets the point across. 

All three of these guys want to get paid. All three guys are important to the Broncos. All three are more important than a kicker who makes $4 million a year. 

I would much rather have Harris on this roster for the remainder of his career than a kicker. Harris is far more important to the overall success of this organization than Prater or any kicker ever will be. 

I get that people are shocked. 

I get that people were caught off guard; especially the Friday before a game. 

But take emotion out of the equation. 

We’re talking about a kicker on a team with Manning.
