Houston Texans looking at trio of kickers

The Houston Texans were underwhelmed with kicker Randy Bullock’s three field goal misses on Sunday Night Football against the division rival Indianapolis Colts, so now they are taking a look at available kicking options.

During their search, the Texans will be bringing in three unsigned kickers — including two familiar faces.

Neil Rackers (pictured above), Shayne Graham and Justin Medlock are all traveling to Houston to work out for the team.

Rackers kicked for the team from 2010 to 2011. While he was with the Texans, Rackers was a captain for the team. As for Graham, he was with the team last season while Bullock was sitting on the injured reserve list.

Last season, Medlock spent ten games with the Carolina Panthers.

You never like to be in the news as a kicker, because that generally means you have done something wrong. For Bullock, it is because he has missed eight kicks this year and the three on Sunday cost the Texans a chance at upsetting the Colts.
