The New York Giants are signing placekicker Randy Bullock, the team officially annoucned Monday evening. The Giants waived untested placekicker Tom Obarski to make room for Bullock.
With veteran placekicker Josh Brown facing a Week 1 suspension and Obarski having missed a 28-yard field goal Saturday vs. the Buffalo Bills, the Giants were in need of at least an opening week replacement for Brown.
They worked out kickers on Monday and chose the 26-year-old Bullock, who has four years of experience. Mike Garafolo is reporting that Bullock will sign a one-year deal with the Giants. He spent the first three seasons of his career with the Houston Texans and split last season between the Texans and New York Jets.
Bullock has made 75-of-93 field goals in his career, 80.6 percent. He made 19-of-23 (82.6 percent) last season in 12 games between Houston and New York. He was a fifth-round pick by the Texans in 2012, but spent his rookie season on IR.
