Yeah, what's up with that? Two years in a row and no CS players.

It is said that he is accurate. But no one has ever accused him of having a strong leg.

Those of you that feel that Graham would have it over Bullock because being a vet and money "under fire," need to remember why the Bengals finally decided to let him go.

For Cincinnati Bengals, It's Time to Part Ways With Shayne Graham

His stints since the Bengals don't have the numbers to be statistically significant enough to make any dogmatic statements about his present potential.

I would think the idea that this squad is projected to win the AFC South again and could be in line for a deeper run in the playoffs is weighing on Rick and Gary.

There's likely to be some close games this year. You've got to wonder if this is more than a camp smoke screen for Bullock outright and think that maybe they are considering going with a veteran kicker.

What? Bullock was the first Aggie Kubiak has drafted. Only the second in Texans history.

I think Bullock gets the job, but Smithiack wants to make sure he knows that his new job isn't his unless he produces. Graham is insurance only, and as we all know, insurance is a good thing in the NFL.

Never did understand his reasoning for cutting the wrong guy the first time around.

I hope he doesn't get cute on the K situation. All indications point to Bullock being the nails out there on the field.
Hartmann turned into a decent punter during the season but from what I remember, he wasn't exactly killing it before getting cut.

Camps are about competition. Graham has a job, that is to act as a bar for Bullock to jump over.

Doesn't sound like too much competition. Bullock is going to be the kicker next season and many more to follow.

Good 5th round choice.

I'm thinking the Texans may see Hartmann as a valuable player. I'm assuming that since he hasn't been given an injury settlment and told to take a hike they still think he could be a member of the team.

Looking at his stats last year, he was decent. Just randomly looking at other punters it appears that they tend to get better with experience. Still a young guy, is a pretty good kick off specialist as well.

I hope he sticks around unless they just find someone flat out better.

Likewise, I'm sure. Kid was getting better as the season progress. I tend to agree with you train of thought Rey. If they were gonna cut the crop, they'd have done it already. They haven't been bashful to this point, I don't see them being tentative in regards to a punter/kicker.
