Gottschalk, an undrafted free agent last year, spent time on the Chiefs practice squad in 2014 then joined Tampa Bay on April 8 before being waived May 28.

Acosta is an undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi, where he kicked 43 field goals and had 201 points.

Hull is another undrafted free agent who played three seasons for Rice. He had 61 catches for 901 yards and eight touchdowns. He set career highs in receptions (32), yards receiving (621) and touchdowns (eight) last season.
