The GOAT himself, Tennessee Titans punter Brett Kern, also has the GOAT son; who would’ve thought?
For a lot of players, it’s family time down at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida, and for Tennessee Titans punter Brett Kern, it’s a chance for him to spend time with his 10-year-old son, Bryce.
Bryce has been enjoying a pretty awesome week at the Pro Bowl.
First, he was able to be the holder — just like his dad — for some field goal practice by Baltimore Ravens kicker, Justin Tucker.
On Friday, Bryce got to interview some of his dad’s teammates, as well as a slew of NFL stars who are making an appearance in the Pro Bowl game on Sunday.
This kid is a natural!
When asked what he thought about his dad on the field, Bryce provided evidence to back up his opinion that his dad is the best punter in the NFL, per Jim Wyatt of Titans Online.
"“I think he is the best,” Bryce Kern said of the other Titan decked out in the No.6 this week. “Tony Romo even said he’s the best punter in the league, and Tony Romo knows a lot about football.”"
After yet another great season, Bryce’s dad is making his third straight Pro Bowl appearance, and he was named a first-team All-Pro for the first time in his career.
Kern led the NFL with 37 punts landing inside the 20, and finished fourth in gross average punt yards and net average punt yards.
During the playoffs, Kern was particularly an asset against the New England Patriots in the wild card round. He dropped four punts inside the 20 and proved to be one of the biggest difference makers in the Titans’ win.
As former defensive coordinator Dean Pees put it during the season, Kern was ‘the most valuable player on defense’ because of his ability to flip the field on the opposing team, setting it up with bad field position.
Pees also said that Kern might be the best punter he’s ever seen. No argument from me, as Kern has routinely been one of the best in the business during his 11 seasons in Nashville.
