From 2014-2018, Ryan Succop never finished the season with a field goal percentage less than 83%.
Then 2019 happened: Succop went 1-for-6 on field goals for an abysmal percentage of 16.7%. Granted, he did deal with injuries, but poor field goal kicking was the difference between a win and a loss too many times this year.
While the other kickers on the roster didn’t exactly do much better, the Titans just have to get a more reliable kicker. Kicking can be the difference between making the playoffs and not.
Because of the multi-year contract, I expect Joseph to be the favorite to win the kicking job. However, don’t be surprised if the Titans draft a kicker in the later rounds to compete.
