Report: Texans Sign Veteran Kicker Shayne Graham

The Houston Texans have signed veteran kicker Shayne Graham, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

A former Pro Bowler, the 34-year-old Graham hasn't had a regular kicking job since 2009, the last of his seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. The journeyman has been with 13 different teams in his 12-year NFL career, most of them very briefly.

On the Texans, Graham will compete for the kicking duties with incoming rookie Randy Bullock, the team's fifth-round pick out of Texas A&M.

“[Graham] has had some success in this league, and I think the competition will be good for them,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “I want to see them compete because it should bring out the best in them."

Graham was 6-for-7 on field-goal attempts last year, kicking for the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens.
