Vanderjagt worked out for the Broncos on Sunday, according to the Denver Post.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Denver is looking for Jason Elam's replacement after the long-time Bronco signed with Atlanta. Should Vanderjagt, who's been out of a job since 2006, catch on with the Broncos, he would compete with Matt Prater for Denver's place-kicking job.
Vanderjagt is among the kickers being considered to fill in for the injured Josh Scobee.

The Cowboys released Vanderjagt on Monday and signed Martin Gramatica, ESPNews reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Vanderjagt had been a source of frustration all season for Bill Parcells, converting on just two of five kicks from beyond 40 yards. In addition to being very inconsistent in terms of making field goals, Vanderjagt kicked just three touchbacks on 46 kickoffs this year, routinely putting their opponents outside their 30-yard line. Vanderjagt could catch on elsewhere, but would not be a reliable fantasy option if he did.
Vanderjagt missed both his field goal attempts in Sunday's win over the Colts.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Mike Vanderjagt.

2006

The NFL’s most accurate kicker (career 87.5 percent) moves to Dallas, a team that hasn’t had a 100-point kicker since Tim Seder (102) in 2000. While the Cowboys’ offense hasn’t been very good for much of that time, it is improving (36 TDs in 2005) and suffered through some mediocre kicking (20-for-29) from Billy Cundiff, Jose Cortez and Shaun Suisham. The addition of Terrell Owens should only boost the unit’s output even more. If Vanderjagt gets 29 FGA, his track record suggests he’ll hit 25 of those – good for 75 points in field goals alone.

2005

You can never go wrong taking the kicker on the NFL’s highest-scoring offense. Even in a season in which Vanderjagt experienced a career-low in field goal attempts (25), he posted 119 points, good for seventh among kickers and well above an NFL team’s average kicking points (102.8). The Colts drafted Michigan State’s Dave Raynor in the sixth round, but he is nothing more than a kickoff guy as the team is unhappy with just four touchbacks last season. Vanderjagt is second in field goal accuracy the past four years at 85.0 percent and has a career mark of 87.0 percent.

2004

What’s not to like here? The Colts were third in the league in points scored, fourth in touchdowns and found time to give Vanderjagt 37 FGA in 2003. Vanderjagt is averaging 128.3 points over the last three years. He can hit from long distance (14-for-20 on 50-plus) and kicks in a dome. He might miss one or two attempts, but nothing much will change for Vanderjagt in 2004.

2003

The most accurate kicker in NFL history, Vanderjagt remains a top-notch fantasy kicker despite posting his career-worst season in 2002. He hit only 74.2 percent of his attempts (23 of 31) for 103 points and ranked 15th among fantasy kickers. But he should regain his form, as the Colts' potent offense will likely give him plenty of scoring opportunities. Plus, he has a strong leg, making 13 of 19 beyond 50. While his kicking tends to be on the mark, Vanderjagt put his high-priced foot in his mouth with disparaging comments about Peyton Manning and coach Tony Dungy. Manning responded by calling him an “idiot kicker” and it looked like Vanderjagt punched a one-way ticket out of town. But apologies were exchanged and Indy's kicking remains in good shape. Vanderjagt could hit for 120 points.
