Source: Texans work out two kickers, two DTs


The Texans worked out two kickers, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly.

It was a precautionary measure due to a minor leg injury suffered by Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn. Fairbairn is expected to kick Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, per a source.

The Texans worked out kickers Michael Badgley and Joey Slye along with defensive tackles Miles Brown and Josh Avery.

None of the players were immediately signed to a contract, according to sources.

Badgley, a former University of Miami standout nicknamed 'The Money Badger,' has kicked for the Los Angeles Chargers and Indianapolis Colts and made 52 of 65 career field goal attempts for an 80 percent success rate.

Slye played at Virginia Tech and has made 54 of 68 career field goals in the NFL, a 79.4 percentage with the Carolina Panthers.

Brown has played for the Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions.

Avery has played for the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.

Aaron Wilson has covered the NFL for 20 seasons, including the Texans, Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars. He has previously written for The Houston Chronicle and The Baltimore Sun. He’s on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL and Instagram: @aaronwilson7128.
