Titans agreed to terms with P Brett Kern on a four-year, $5.2 million extension, including $2.1 million guaranteed.

Not bad for a player claimed off waivers a year and a half ago. Kern's 42.9 average was mediocre in 2010, but he finished an impressive sixth in the more important net average with 39.1. A telling stat is that returners averaged just 6.1 yards per punt against Kern last season.

Broncos second-year punter Brett Kern says he put on 20 pounds of muscle this offseason.

Kern says more muscle means more hangtime and consistency. We're not sure if we buy that a punter really jacked himself up by 20 pounds, but it can't hurt.
