Arynn Siposs, Punter

Philly's Australian punter has not yet taken his game to the NFL level. After a successful career at Auburn, he's been one of the lower ranked punters in the league.

In 2021, his 43.9 yards per punt was the third-worst among full-time starters. This past year, he improved his average to 45.6, but still made several key mistakes.

In the fourth quarter of Super Bowl 57, Siposs punted a low line-drive kick opposite of coverage. Chiefs returner Kadarius Toney took advantage and returned the punt to the Eagles' five-yard-line setting up a Kansas City touchdown. It was a key moment in a close game.

Unless he improves his game, Siposs is in danger of being replaced, but that's only if he walks into the regular season as the starter. Stay tuned. This is a developing story that could turn out to be interesting.
