Texans release Bullock, sign Novak

- The Houston Texans released kicker Randy Bullock and will replace him with veteran kicker Nick Novak. Bullock missed two extra points and a field goal through the first three games of the 2015 season. The field goal he missed was from 43 yards in the win over Tampa Bay. He also missed an extra point in that game.

This is Novak’s eighth year, having spent  the last four with the San Diego Chargers. He has also kicked for the Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs. Novak has been the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week three times during his career. His best season was two years ago with the Chargers when he was 34-37 on field goals and 42-42 on point after attempts, scoring 144 points.

Novak is 11-18 from 50-plus yards during his career.

Bullock, who is from Klein High School and Texas A&M, was taken by the Texans in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. His best season was in 2014 when he scored 130 points after connecting on 30-35 field goals and making all 40 of his extra points.
