The Texans are fixing to have an old fashion kicker competition.

Houston signed Neil Rackers Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Rackers and Kris Brown will battle all summer for the gig.

Brown, an original member of the Texans, notably missed a few big field goals against the Colts in a spotty overall season. Rackers, who was replaced by Jay Feely in Arizona, visited the Jets Monday.

It's telling that Rackers got better money and chose the Houston job. He thinks he has a better chance of beating out Brown than Nick Folk in New York.

UPDATE: Rackers got $350,000 guaranteed, according to Schefter. Brown has his work cut out for him.
