Titans kicker Ryan Succop and punter Brett Kern are two of 16 potential unrestricted free agents Tennessee will have coming up this offseason. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Tuesday he would like for both kicking specialists to remain Titans for next season, according to The Tennessean.
"The only thing I'll say about those is that Kern punted too much and Succop didn't kick enough. That would be the negatives that I would say about those guys,"' Whisenhunt said Monday. "I thought Brett did a good job for us this year. And I thought Ryan, coming in, doing what we asked him to do, I think he had a career high for percentage made. So I like both of those guys."
Succop went 19 of 22 on field goals and a perfect 27 of 27 on extra points in his first season with the Titans. He had spent his previous five as a member of the Chiefs.
"I just have a ton of respect for everybody here, and it was an awesome opportunity to play here this year," Succop said.
Kern had a 40.8 net punting average in 2014.
