Default Kicking competition continues at OTAs!!

Moats waived

Coach Gary Kubiak said last week the Texans would release one of their running backs before training camp to make sure the others got enough repetitions. They didn't wait until camp.

The Texans placed veteran Ryan Moats on waivers Thursday. Moats, 27, spent the last two seasons with the Texans, starting two games last season and rushing for 390 yards and scoring four touchdowns.

With second-round pick Ben Tate finally healthy, Kubiak wanted to make sure he made up for lost time and cleared space on the practice field by releasing Moats.
Competition still kicking

Veteran kickers Kris Brown and Neil Rackers competed again on the final day of OTAs. After about 10 kicks, Rackers missed only one and Brown missed five, including each of his final four. Kubiak stressed why creating competition prior to camp is so important.

“You're never going to be able to go into training camp and say that Kris is going to get 10 kicks and Neil is going to get 10,” Kubiak said. “So we have to create competition here in practice.”
Mixing it up

After remaining silent all week about whether the veterans would practice during next week's mini-camp, Kubiak unveiled his plans. Everyone will work out with strength and conditioning coach Cedric Smith and when they finish, the rookies and a select few veterans will practice.

“We're trying to keep all the young guys out here, and a few veterans so that we can still get some practice done,” Kubiak said.
