The Pittsburgh Steelers signed former New York Giants and Houston Texans kicker Randy Bullock on Saturday, the team announced

Cornerback Al-Hajj Shabazz was released to make room for Bullock on the active roster. 

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac, kicker Chris Boswell is nursing an abdominal injury that has made him questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Giants. 

Bullock last kicked for the Giants earlier this season, but he didn't attempt a single field goal during his time with Big Blue. In his lone start in the Giants' Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys, he converted two of his three extra-point opportunities. 

Prior to his brief stint with the Giants, Bullock spent the 2015 campaign split between the Texans and New York Jets. The 26-year-old hit on 19 of 23 field goals overall and converted 22 of 25 extra points last season. 

For his career, he's drilled 80.6 percent of his field goals. However, that number dips to 75 percent on attempts between 40 and 49 yards. Bullock's lack of a big leg has also hurt him from distance, evidenced by his 5-of-11 conversion rate on attempts of at least 50 yards. 

That said, he is generally money from inside 40 yards. He's missed just two attempts between 30-39 yards for his career and one between 20-29 yards.
