Jaguars Tried Out Kickers Randy Bullock & Zach Hocker, Didn’t Sign Either

The Jaguars brought in free agent kickers Randy Bullock and Zach Hocker for tryouts on Wednesday, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.

However, neither Bullock nor Hocker were signed to a contract, which is obviously great news for Jason Myers.

On Tuesday, Jaguars HC Gus Bradley told reporters that they hadn’t ruled out bringing in free agent kickers for tryouts with Myers struggling, but it looks like they plan to give Myers another opportunity.

Hocker, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Redskins. However, he was unable to make the team’s final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason last year and was among their final roster cuts.

The Dolphins later signed him to a future/reserve deal in early January before cutting him back May. Hocker later caught on with the Saints and managed to win the job this summer.

In six games this season, Hocker has converted 9 of 13 (69.2 percent) of his field goal attempts. He’s also 11 out of 12 in extra point tries.

Bullock, 25, was in the final year of his four-year, $2.278 million contract when the Texans elected to release him a few weeks ago and sign former Chargers K Nick Novak.

Bullock has converted 83.3 percent of his field goals this season over the course of three games, but has missed two of his five extra point attempts.
