Texans Release K Randy Bullock, Sign K Nick Novak

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans are releasing K Randy Bullock and signing Nick Novak to a contract.

This comes after the team brought in a number of kickers for tryouts on Tuesday. The other kickers who tried out for Houston today include: Giorgio Tavecchio, Connor Barth, Kai Forbath and Chris Boswell.

Bullock, 25, is in the final year of his four-year, $2.278 million contract that included a $178,108 signing bonus. He stands to make a base salary of $660,000 for the 2015 season.

Novak, 34, was a somewhat surprising cut from the Chargers this past weekend, as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Since being release, Novak has also worked out for the Saints.

In 2014, Novak converted 22-of-26 field goal attempts, which includes three of four attempts from over 50 yards. He also had 10 touchbacks and didn’t miss an extra point try. It’s worth mentioning that Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 71 kicker out of 72 qualifying players.
