"We've had promises for a while now on a long-term deal and they came to us with a minimum offer. So we just felt like the opportunity for advancement was not in Houston. We came in and did the job like they asked us to. Didn't really feel like that was appreciated," Rackers told the TV station.

"I am really excited to go to Washington," Rackers added.

The Redskins roster currently includes Graham Gano, who is an "established, good kicker," Rackers said.

Rackers spent the last two seasons with the Texans, and in 2011, set a team record with 135 points.
