Default Texans host kicker tryouts

At their regular Tuesday tryout session at Methodist Training Center, the Texans worked out three kickers — Billy Cundiff, Olindo Mare and John Potter.

The Texans are happy with Shayne Graham and his 74 points, including 15-of-17 field goals. They bring in players by position every Tuesday, including veterans like Cundiff and Mare, who have played for multiple teams.

Default Re: Texans host kicker tryouts



I'm happy with Graham and his FG tries. Unless he's injured, I'm sure this is for a kickoff specialist.

In 2011, Cundiff had 76 kickoffs and 44 of them went for touchbacks. Mare had 84 and 53 were touchbacks. In 2011 and 2012 combined, Graham has had 68 kickoffs with 12 touchbacks.

I honestly think Cundiff should be a kicker for someone in the league. He gets great distance on kickoffs and has a big leg on field goals. The risk with him is whether he's past his playoff blunder or not.

I wonder which rookie will hit the IR to create a spot for the extra leg

So you think since we had a return specialist earlier in the year we'll add a kickoff/Long distance field goal specialist?

I think after a great win Sunday night, the FO should've taken the player mandatory day off as well.

Default Re: Texans host kicker tryouts

AGAIN..... I go back to what I said earlier.

That is maybe the FO should've taken this (Mandatory player off), if we're looking at kickers... Shayne Graham has kicked quite well AND we have Bullock on IR.....

Whatever.... We're 8-1 and we're talking kickers....

I'm out!

*EDIT*
Dumbest thread ................. EVER!

Bill, pretty sure they're just doing their due diligence. Nothing to get worked up over. Graham isn't going anywhere and no one has suggested that they want him to.

Lol, oh geez. Was that him costing the Skins games earlier? Well I retract everything I said about him deserving to kick for someone this year then.

I like Norg around here.

He's been no more or less wrong on things than any of us have.

And he's nice to everyone.
