The Tennessee Titans have had some great defensive players in their past as well as a few great offensive players, but they always seem to have talent on special teams.
Special teams can occasionally get overlooked in the NFL. Everyone knows their importance, but still, at times even the best special teams players can be forgotten. So, let’s look back through history at the best special teams players ever for the Tennessee Titans.
While the Tennessee Titans never seemed to spend a lot of resources for kickers, punters or return men, they have seemingly always made it a point to be good on special teams. Aside from occasionally having a dud, the Titans normally have a pretty solid group of guys for kicks and punts.
One thing the Titans have definitely knocked it out of the park with is punters. From Craig Hentrich to Brett Kern, the Tennessee Titans have always been able to pin teams deep in their own territory with punts.
Last season, the Titans got plenty of examples of how special teams can alter a game. Joshua Kalu was a hero in the regular season game versus the Kansas City Chiefs, blocking a field goal that was then returned for a Titans touchdown.
Even though sometimes players on special teams can be easily forgotten, there are a few Titans players that will always be remembered for their contributions to the team.
