15-Year NFL Veteran Announces Retirement

After a memorable 15-year career in the NFL, punter Brett Kern recently announced his retirement.

Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site confirmed the news, highlighting Kern's significant contributions to the league. Kern's journey began in 2008 when he entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Toledo, joining the Denver Broncos.

However, it was with the Tennessee Titans that Kern truly made his mark. Over the years, he established himself as one of the league's top punters, earning accolades and recognition for his exceptional performance. Kern's consistent excellence led to two All-Pro honors and three consecutive Pro Bowl selections from 2017 to 2019.

Throughout his career, Kern showcased his skills on the field, boasting an average punt of 45.9 yards. In 2017, he even led the league with an impressive average of 49.7 yards per punt.

Kern's ability to pin opponents deep in their territory with accurate and powerful punts was a valuable asset to the Titans.

Despite his successful tenure with the Titans, there was mention of Kern being cut during training camp last season. Following his time with the Titans, Kern concluded his career with a brief stint with the Philadelphia Eagles, appearing in four games before ultimately retiring from the NFL.

Brett Kern's retirement marks the end of a remarkable journey for the accomplished punter. His accomplishments, including his multiple Pro Bowl selections and All-Pro honors, serve as a testament to his skill and dedication to the game of football.
