I hate reporting Twitter as the source but it pretty much confirms it. Cody Mandell gave a s/o (shout out) to Shelley.
Shelley tweeted Tuesday night "Thank you to everyone who reached out in congratulations! Excited for this opportunity!".
Shelley will be competing with former TAMU kicker Randy Bullock who was picked in the fifth round (161st overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. They ended up placing him on injured reserve with a groin injury in August 2012 and he never saw the field. Veteran Shayne Graham served as the Texans kicker in 2012 but was signed by the Cleveland Browns a few weeks ago.
If Bullock is not ready to kick, Shelley might be the man. At the very least, he can say he donned a uniform in the NFL.
I am really rooting for former walk-on H-back Kelly Johnson to get picked up. I thought he had a pretty decent Pro Day.
