Jason Elam, who played the first 15 seasons (1993-2007) of his 17-year NFL career with the Broncos, is the franchise’s all-time leader in field goals (395) and points (1,786) – both representing the second-highest totals in NFL history for a single team (K Jason Hanson, Det.).
Including his two final NFL seasons with Atlanta (2008-09), Elam finished his career making 436-of-540 (80.7%) field goals and 675-of-679 (99.4%) PATs for 1,983 points. He set an NFL mark with 16 consecutive seasons scoring 100-plus points, and his 263 consecutive games (every contest of his career) with a point was the second-longest streak in league history at the time of his retirement.
Elam was selected by the Broncos in the third round (70th overall) of the 1993 NFL Draft from the University of Hawaii, where he converted 79 career field goals to finish one shy of the then-NCAA record. A graduate of Brookwood High School in Snellville, Ga., Elam was born on March 8, 1970.
