Three-time Pro Bowl punter Brett Kern is retiring after 15 seasons in the NFL.
After entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo he would play 22 games for the Broncos between 2008 and 2009 before being released. The Titans would claim him on waivers and his career took off from there.
Kern finished his career as the Titans all-time leader in punts (923), gross average (45.9), net average (40.8) and punts inside the 20 (373).

“I want to congratulate Brett on an amazing NFL career,” Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk said in a statement. “He was a true professional and one of the important players who helped our organization reach the level of success that we have sustained for a number of years now. After being named to three Pro Bowls, receiving All-Pro honors and setting record after record, he would be on a very short list of the best waiver claims our organization has ever made. Brett will always be considered part of the Titans family, and we wish him continued success in the years to come.”
