Braden Mann proves he is the best player on the Jets

Punters are tacklers too

Everyone knows Braden Mann is an amazing punter. The former Ray Guy Award winner broke college football records and was drafted in the sixth round last spring. And thanks to playing for the New York Jets, leads the league in total punt yardage, almost doubling his closest competition.

But one thing Aggie fans also knew is that Mann is also an adept tackler. He made touchdown-saving tackles multiple time at A&M, once against Henry Ruggs versus Alabama, and even forcing a fumble against South Carolina.

Well add one more to Mann’s tally, eluding a blocker before making a tackle on Thursday Night Football against the Denver Broncos.

Rumor is he’ll start at safety next Sunday.
