NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Garrett Hartley's name is etched into New Orleans Saints lore as the player whose kick sent the club to its only Super Bowl.
John Kasay, one of the most successful kickers in NFL history, proved last season that he was not yet over the hill at age 42.
While both have been back with New Orleans this preseason, the Saints will only have room for one of them.
Houston also has two kickers vying for one spot. The Texans are trying to decide between rookie Randy Bullock, drafted in the fifth round out of Texas A&M, and veteran Shayne Graham, who kicked last season for both Miami and Baltimore.
Those competitions will continue Saturday night when the Saints (No. 9 in the AP Pro 32) host the Texans (No. 4).
