Texans Working Out Kickers Nick Novak, Connor Barth & Kai Forbath On Tuesday

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Texans are bringing in veteran K Nick Novak for a workout on Tuesday.

  • Aaron Wilson reports that the Texans are also bringing in kickers Kai Forbath, Giorgio Tavecchio, and Chris Boswell.
  • John McClain adds that Connor Barth is also getting a workout as well.

Philadelphia brought in a number of kickers today for tryouts including Novak, but they ultimately elected to go with former Dolphins K Caleb Sturgis.

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.

Forbath, 28, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2011. He lasted a around eight months with the team before he was placed on waivers and later claimed by the Redskins.

Washington placed an original round tender on Forbath back in March that would have paid him $1,542,000 for the 2015 season before he was cut a few weeks back.

Forbath wound up missing one of his two field goal attempts against the Dolphins in Week 1. He added an extra point and a touchback.
