Denver must have missed all of the Steelers game tapes from last season or this Kern guy really sucks ass. Should be fun to watch Berger shanking punts for someone else in two weeks.
Broncos punt Kern, welcome Berger

It's fitting that, a day after a quarterback was spotted hiding a hot dog between his legs, a punter known for keeping a Snickers in his shoe has gotten a new job.
The Broncos have announced that punter Brett Kern has been waived, and that Mitch Berger has been signed.
Berger punted for the Steelers last season, after Daniel Sepulveda tore an ACL in training camp.
Adam Schefter of ESPN pointed out last Monday that the Broncos had made no roster moves all year.
They finally have -- and the hope is that it makes them better in a phase of the game on which they haven't had to heavily rely.
