Biography

PRO: The Titans signed Ryan Stonehouse as an undrafted free agent following the 2022 NFL Draft to add competition to the punting position. The 5-foot-10-inch, 193-pounder put together an impressive training camp performance, unseating the incumbent Brett Kern, who had been the club's punter since 2009. Stonehouse enjoyed a record-breaking rookie campaign in 2022. He finished the season with a gross average of 53.10 yards per punt on 90 total punts (4,779 total yards). In doing so, he broke Sammy Baugh's single-season NFL record of 51.40 yards per punt, which was established in 1940 and was never matched among qualifiers (2.5 punts per team game). With a net punting average of 44.03 yards per punt in 2022, Stonehouse also established a new NFL record for the highest net average by a rookie punter.
