  • Jake Bates: Kicked out of Houston

    Bates has been waived by the Texans, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Bates went 2-for-3 on extra-point kicks in Thursday's preseason opener against New England. He also produced two touchbacks on his kickoffs. He was brought into camp to give Ka'imi Fairbairn some competition, but that was a long shot and it looks like the Texans have seen enough. The undrafted rookie will now need to locate a new opportunity elsewhere.

  • Texans' Jake Bates: Misses extra point Thursday

    Bates went 2-for-3 on extra-point kicks and produced two touchbacks in Thursday's preseason game against New England.

    Bates got all the kicking opportunities Thursday, as Ka'imi Fairbairn never made it to the field. The rookie was wide right on his miss. Other than for salary, there isn't a football reason to replace Fairbairn, who was successful on 94 percent of his field goals last year and owns a 70 percent accuracy rate from 50 and beyond for his career.

  • Texans' Jake Bates: Signs with Houston

    The Texans signed Bates on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Bates worked out for the Texans on Saturday as part of the team's local prospect day and impressed enough to earn a deal. The Arkansas product will attempt to push Ka'imi Fairbairn, who has been Houston's kicker since 2017 and connected on 94 percent of his field-goal attempts a year ago.
