  • Posted a 37.6-yard net average in 2010, which matched what was then the best mark by a Green Bay punter since 1976 (Jon Ryan, 2007) and placed 25 punts inside the 20 on the season, the most by a Packer since Josh Bidwell registered 26 in 2002.
  • Was especially productive over the final nine games of the regular season in 2010, ranking No. 3 in the NFL in net average (39.9), No. 9 in gross average (44.2), and tied for No. 4 in punts inside the 20 (20) over that span.
  • Carried his production into the playoffs as he tied the franchise playoff record (since 1976) with five punts inside the 20 at Chicago in the NFC Championship Game, matching the previous mark set by Hentrich at San Francisco (Jan. 11, 1998).
  • Has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week three times in his career (Week 8, 2010; Week 13, 2011; Week 2, 2012). Became the first NFL punter to win the award in each of his first three seasons in the league.
  • Signed with the Packers on Jan. 14, 2010, and battled Australian Chris Bryan for the punting position during training camp. Earned the job with a strong showing in the Family Night scrimmage as well as his 41.5-yard gross average and 38.0-yard net on four punts during his first preseason.
  • Entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Indianapolis in 2009 and went through the offseason program and the early portion of training camp with the Colts before being released Aug. 11 of that year.
