Arryn Siposs Biography

Saturday, 11 February 2023
Former St Kilda player Arryn Siposs is edging closer to realising his American dream after confirming he's fit and ready to be selected by the Philadelphia Eagles for the 2023 Super Bowl.

Siposs, who played 28 games for the Saints between 2011 and 2015, tried his hand - or more specifically, his foot - at American football in 2017 and made his NFL debut as a punter for the Eagles in 2021.

Having been sidelined by an ankle injury since December, Siposs returned to Philadelphia's active roster last week and is preparing to play in Super Bowl LVII against Kansas City.

Arryn Siposs reflects on his journey from being cut by St Kilda to playing against Tom Brady in the NFL.

After banking nearly US$700,000 in 2021, Siposs has almost already matched what he earned during his AFL career and could earn plenty more in Pennsylvania, where his three-year deal is worth a total of US$2.5 million if he continues to play.

Siposs punted the ball 61 times this season, starting inside the Atlanta Falcons' US$1.6 billion cathedral, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, in week one, as well as in front of 93,267 Cowboys fans at AT&T Stadium in Texas, and the Raiders' shiny new home in Las Vegas, before ending at the hands of Brady and the defending champions in Florida.

"I'd love it to be (a long career), but at the same time I can't necessarily have that mindset because maybe there's a little bit of complacency that could come with that. I just need to have the mindset that I had going into last season and prepare myself again as if someone is coming in to take it away from me. I've got to put in all the hard yards again to repeat what I did this past season," he said.

"While it was a good season, and I'm happy with where I'm at, there is always room for improvement. The business doesn’t allow you to feel comfortable, especially from a punter's aspect. Until you really establish yourself on a second contract, you've got to have that mindset; anything can change in any given moment."

Former Saint Arryn Siposs has been a starter as a punter for Auburn University, regularly playing in front of huge crowds in large stadiums.

"It's a bit surreal, to be honest. You play with kids between the age of 18 and 22 and they're playing in front of more than 80,000 people every single week. That's something that kids back home couldn't imagine beyond their wildest dreams," Siposs said.

"I'm very lucky to be able to go and do that and play at such a beautiful school with a rich history, playing against some quality opposition. Every single game counts and the atmosphere certainly makes that a lot more special as well."

Siposs is looking to become the eighth Australian, and the fifth former AFL player, on an NFL roster in the upcoming NFL draft.

"It's a tough business to crack into. There are 256 picks, which sounds like a lot. But there's over 1000 guys who are trying to get on a roster and have a shot at making it to the league," he said.

"Punters and kickers aren't normally the guys who they go for in the draft, you have to be doing something exceptional. But I truly believe that with what I've been able to show throughout my two years at Auburn, that I've given myself every chance to get my name called out when that time comes."

Wednesday, 8 January 2020
Arryn Siposs is hoping to earn a punting gig in the NFL after declaring for the draft.

Siposs was delisted by St Kilda at the end of 2015 and spent time in the VFL following that before receiving an offer from Auburn University to join its college football team as a punter in 2017.

"Auburn has provided me with opportunities and experiences I could not have dreamed of. I have been so proud to put on my Auburn jersey and walk onto the field with an amazing group of men," Siposs said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Tuesday, 10 July 2012

"His capacity to play multiple roles combined with his elite kicking skills are highly valued. And with a continued focus on improvement we believe Arryn can develop into an extremely versatile player."
