Jason Elam is excited that a Denver Bronco kicker broke his record

Most players would be greedy when it comes to records being broken, but Jason Elam was ecstatic for Matt Prater who broke his record long 63 yard field goal a few weeks ago.

“I’ve been asked if I’m disappointed,” Elam said Monday from his Alaska home. “The way I look at it is I got to hold that thing or co-hold it for 15 years, and as a fan it’s like the Olympics. As a fan watching the Olympics, you want to see that record broken. You’re cheering him on.

“I know what it meant to me. I know how much fun it was for me especially back in ’98. I’m excited for Matt that he gets to experience it. It’s all his now.”

Jason Elam is a class act and it is awesome that he gave Prater some words of encouragement.
