With the roster at 53, the Buffalo Bills are now tasked with finding a punter to add to their roster in addition to making room for him.
Speculation has been circling around Brett Kern after he was released by the Tennessee Titans on Monday. However, the three-time Pro Bowler doesn’t seem willing to play for the Bills.
Kern’s father, Cal, was on Lockport radio station WLVL’s morning show Wednesday and claimed that his son will not be signing with the Buffalo Bills.
Kern seems to be comfortable where he is as he has held the punting job in Tennessee for the past thirteen years, receiving All-Pro honors twice (2017, 2019) and being selected to the Pro Bowl three times (2017-2019) during that time.
He’s 36 and has made his home in Tennessee, despite his strong ties to his parents’ home town of Grand Island.
Despite his feelings, Bills fans weren’t too happy with his decision.
The Buffalo Bills are fresh off releasing punter Matt Araiza over accusations of him gang-raping 17-year-old last October.
San Diego State University officials made their first public statements addressing a civil lawsuit filed against former punter Matt Araiza and two other football players of allegedly gang-raping a 17-year-old girl.
“To be absolutely clear, we take allegations of sexual assault very seriously and do not support any actions or behaviors that cause harm to others,” Athletic Director John Wicker said Monday at a press conference.
The 22-year-old NFL rookie has denied the accusations.
