HOUSTON (AP) — Texans coach Gary Kubiak must choose a kicker during training camp, and for a team with Super Bowl aspirations that could be a pivotal decision.

Houston drafted Lou Groza winner Randy Bullock in the fifth round, then signed veteran Shayne Graham to challenge Bullock for the job. Kubiak is looking for a replacement for Neil Rackers, who signed with Washington in the offseason. Rackers went 32 for 38 for Houston last season.

Kubiak will get his first look at his kickers in action when Houston (No. 6 in the AP Pro32) opens the preseason at Carolina (20, AP Pro 32) on Saturday. He’ll decide later in the week how he’ll split the opportunities for Bullock and Graham, and says he’ll be watching kickoffs as closely as field-goal tries.
