The Tennessee Titans are waiving one of their longest-tenured players. Punter Brett Kern was cut Monday as the Bills — and every other NFL team — scramble to reduce their roster to 53 players before Tuesday's deadline.
Kern, 36, has been a member of the Titans since the 2009 NFL season. He's made the Pro Bowl three times and was named to the All-Pro team in 2019.
Kern wasn't the only punter released Monday. The Denver Broncos cut punter Sam Martin on Monday, according to Ian Rapoport or NFL Network.
#Broncos P Sam Martin is being released today by Denver after indicating he would refuse any pay reduction. He was a top 5 punter statistically in 2021 and set Broncos all-time record for net punting last season. Will have interest.

Both Kern and Martin may receive looks from the Buffalo Bills, who cut rookie punter Matt Araiza after he was accused of gang raping a minor. The Bills do not have a punter on their roster following Araiza's release.
