There aren’t many things in football that are a sure thing. When it comes to kickers, possibly the most turned over position in football, continuity isn’t something that happens a lot. There are only a handful of kickers that I can think of who have been as clutch as Jason has for his career.

In a position that sees an incredible amount of turnover, Elam was able to stay at the top or near top of the leagues best kickers for almost two decades. From his humble beginnings in Georgia, where he was barley recruited to his days in college where he set many WAC records, Jason has had to endure a lot to become one of the best of all time.

THere are not many kickers I would elect to the Hall of Fame, but Elam is one of them. No player in NFL history has scored more points for one team than Elam has with the Denver Broncos. He also holds NFL records for best extra point conversion percentage (.995), most consecutive seasons with at least 100 points (15), most seasons with at least 100 points (15), fastest to 300 successful field goals, fastest to 1,600 points and fastest to 1,700 points.Furthermore, Elam was the first player in NFL history to score at least 200 points against three or more teams (San Diego Chargers: 222, Oakland Raiders: 215, Kansas City Chiefs: 203). Elam shares a record with Steve Christie for the most overtime field goals; 9.

He is a three time Pro Bowler and a two time Super Bowl chempion. He shares an incredible distinction of kicking the longest field goal in NFL history (Tied with Tom Dempsey) at 63 yards. If you played fantasy football, he was always the kicker that if he was still around, you just had to take.

If you haven’t heard yet, Jason retired from the game this past week. He signed a one day contract in Denver to be able to retire as a Bronco. Last year was difficult for ELam as he was only able to conect on about 50% of his attempts from over 30 yards. For the first and what would be only time in his career, he was waived by the Atlanta Falcons. That proved to be the last move he would ever want to make as a player in the NFL.

As for his eBay value, there aren’t any certified autographed cards that I could find, however I do there there is a Fleer Autographics card of him floating out there. Most of his signed stuff was running about $2 – $5. Certainly worth it if you can prove he signed it. He does have some nice refractor cards and they were running only a dollar. I have heard that he is a great through the mail signer and is worth takeing a crack at.There aren’t many things in football that are a sure thing.
