Detroit Lions excited about punter battle: ‘They can do all kinds of things’

For the first time in several years, the Detroit Lions will have a punter camp battle in training camp this year. And with new special teams coordinator Brayden Coombs in charge of the unit, it will be one of the most important duties for the first-time coordinator.

It won’t be easy decision, either. Both competitors, Jack Fox and former Australian Football League’s Arryn Siposs, have never kicked a punt at the NFL level. Regardless, Coombs is eager to see the competition play out.

“I’m really excited about it, really excited about both of those guys,” Coombs said in a Zoom conference over the weekend.
