Rackers was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He also played for the Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans, and Washington Redskins.
Rackers reached, and or surpassed, 20 touchbacks in a season twice in his career.
Rackers once had a streak of 31 consecutive field goals made before missing a 43-yarder in 2005 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
On New Year's Day, 2006, Rackers kicked his 40th field goal of the season, an NFL record. He was rewarded with a spot in that year's Pro Bowl.

ABOUT KICKING FOR THE DREAM and COLLEEN’S DREAM FOUNDATION:
Billy Cundiff, who has been an NFL kicker for over 10 years for teams such as the Cowboys, Saints, Browns, Ravens and Redskins, launched Kicking For The Dream in May of 2013, as an effort to support Colleen’s Dream Foundation, a foundation which raises money to support research for the early detection of, and improved treatment for, ovarian cancer.
Cundiff says Colleen’s Dream Foundation started in 2012 as a result of his mother-in-law's battle with ovarian cancer.
“Colleen felt it was important to raise money for research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer,” says Cundiff. “Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women’s health issues, we have an incredible opportunity for research and education.”
