Texans Looking at Options for Kicker

The Houston Texans are looking to make some mid-season moves in the kicker position.

Following Sunday's dismal performance, kicker Randy Bullock could now be facing some competition for his job.  Bullock has missed eight of his 21 field goals this season including three in Sunday's 27 to 24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

The Texans on Tuesday brought in three kickers to workout with the team.  Neil Rackers, Justin Medlock and former Texans kicker Shayne Graham.  Graham was let go following last season when a then injured Randy Bullock took over.  Bullock was the Texans fifth round draft pick in 2012 but sat out last season due to injury.

Some are calling for Bullock to be let go out right, instead of trying to keep two kickers on the roster.  Former Texans linebacker and Sportstalk 790 host ND Kalu says the Texans can't afford to have two kickers, "Kicker, punter, that's not the position where you want multiple guys when you have depth issues at linebacker."

The Texans take on the Arizona Cardinals Sunday afternoon in Tempe.  The Texans have lost their last six games.
