Nobody understands the trials and tribulations that come along with the search for a reliable kicker quite like the Tennessee Titans do. However, the team found its solution in 2021 by signing Randy Bullock, who would produce the most consistent season from a Titans kicker since Ryan Succop’s 2018 campaign.
Bullock, who is entering his 11th season in the NFL, went 26-for-31 (83.9%) on field goals in his first year as a Titan. Bullock also converted on 42-of-45 extra point attempts (93.3%).
He became a cult hero in Tennessee last season, delivering game-winning kicks against Seattle, Indianapolis, and San Francisco.
Perhaps the coolest locker room moment of the season came after his game-winning boot in overtime on the road against the Colts.

With that being said, one strong season is still not enough for Titans fans to get over their trust issues.
Reports have surfaced from Titans training camp raving of bullock’s consistency thus far.

Randy Bullock went 8-for-9 on FGs. Wide right from 53 yards. #Titans— Ben Arthur (@benyarthur) July 29, 2022
Randy Bullock went 8-for-8 on FGs. Didn’t see distance of the first one, but he hit from 33, 37, 44, 42, 48, 50 and 43 yards.— Ben Arthur (@benyarthur) July 27, 2022
Bullock’s five missed field goals all came in the range of 40-49 yards. He was perfect from everywhere else on the field. Seeing consistency from 40+ yards is an encouraging sign.
No news is typically good news when it comes to a kicker’s performance in training camp, but I disagree. I want Randy Bullock content every single day, and (at least) twice on Sundays.
