Eagles Add Ex-Jets Punter Braden Mann: Cut Arryn Siposs

The Philadelphia Eagles have made a significant move to bolster their team’s special teams after starting the 2023 season with a record of 2-0. The team recently signed former Jets and Steelers punter Braden Mann to their practice squad, as reported by veteran NFL reporter Adam Schefter on Monday morning.

As part of the move, the Eagles released their existing punter Arryn Siposs, who was elevated to play in the team’s games against the Patriots and Vikings, as per the NFL's rules on practice squad players. Siposs has been criticized for his lack of efficiency, and this may have contributed to the team’s decision to release him.

Mann brings three years of experience as a punter for the New York Jets, and he had a touchback rate of 9.6% last season while landing 32.5% of his punts inside of his opponent’s 20-yard line. Though he was recently cut by the Steelers during the offseason, he is expected to provide much-needed assistance to the Eagles’ special teams unit.

The Eagles have a heavy contender in the Dallas Cowboys in their quest to win the NFC East, and every move counts in their effort to keep their mistakes to a minimum. Mann’s experience and abilities as a punter could make all the difference in the team’s pursuit of success this season.

In conclusion, the Eagles’ signing of Mann is a clear sign that the team is not content with their current roster, even after winning their first two games of the season. This move underscores the team’s commitment to winning and shows that they are willing to make changes when needed to secure their position as a top contender in the NFC East.
