Veteran free agent kicker Neil Rackers has signed with the Washington Redskins.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday that Rackers will compete with Graham Gano to be this season's kicker.

Rackers has played 12 seasons with Cincinnati, Arizona and Houston. He made 32 of 38 field goal attempts — including 4 of 5 from 50-plus yards — last year with the Texans.

Gano went 31 for 41 for the Redskins last year, but he had five attempts blocked.
