Subsequent to going undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft, McManus endorsed with the Indianapolis Colts yet was deferred before the beginning of the period, as Indianapolis previously had the unbelievable Adam Vinatieri. 

In 2014, he began the preseason with the New York Giants prior to being exchanged to the Denver Broncos, to fill their newly discovered need at the position. Denver's kicker at the time was Matt Prater, who started the standard season with a four-game suspension. 

Three days before Prater was to be restored from his suspension, the Broncos chose to deliver him and named McManus their authority starter. Then, at that point, lead trainer John Fox conceded the group took a "act of pure trust" by keeping McManus over the demonstrated Prater. 

Throughout the following eight years, they would be remunerated for that jump. 

Regardless of beginning the initial four games with a close wonderful record, McManus battled in the excess games. This brought about the Broncos choosing to sign Connor Barth and postponing McManus. In any case, McManus was rapidly re-endorsed by the Broncos, on account of Barth's powerless leg, and spent the remainder of the period as the group's opening shot subject matter expert. 

Going into the 2015 season, the Broncos brought back both Barth and McManus for instructional course. McManus won the work, demonstrating more steady than in 2014, and the Broncos cut Barth.

Mill operator called it "one of the dopest things I've at any point been a piece of." 

That fellowship stays solid right up 'til the present time.
