Matt Prater Nails 64 Yard Kick To Set The NFL Record

Former Bronco Jason Elam is doing pretty well

(Photo: Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)The average career length of an NFL player these days is around just three years. Sadly, many of those players find themselves out in the cold once their careers end, and the ones that do not save their money are stuck up the creek without a paddle.
