Bengals waived K Mike Nugent.
He's been replaced by Randy Bullock. Nugent has been the Bengals' kicker since 2010. The team was extremely patient, but Nugent simply cost them too many times this season. Nugent shanked an astonishing six extra points on 29 tries. He was converting an almost-acceptable 79.3 percent of his field goals. Now 34, Nugent might not be the first call teams make when needing a kicker. Tue, Dec 13, 2016 04:18:00 PM

The Bengals will stick with K Mike Nugent for Week 13.

Nugent missed his fourth extra point on Sunday, and is just 18-of-23 on field goals this season. By any measure, both numbers are unacceptable, but the kicker market isn't exactly robust right now, and Nugent's track record suggests he'll stabilize. It probably doesn't hurt his cause that the Bengals' season is lost.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said the team is sticking with K Mike Nugent.

Nugent has been shaky all season, but he has been really bad the last four games, missing three extra points and three field goals over that stretch. The Bengals tried out multiple kickers over the bye week, but Lewis said he is more confident in Nugent turning it around than any of the free agent options. Even so, Nugent is on a very short leash.

Bengals re-signed K Mike Nugent to a two-year, $4 million contract.

The kicker market has thinned out more quickly than any other position, with Nugent, Stephen Gostkowski, Shayne Graham, Matt Bryant, and Matt Prater all staying put. Nugent, 33, is coming off one of his worst seasons, going 26-of-33 on field goal tries. He was one of the NFL's best kickers from 2010-2013.

Mike Nugent missed three field goals in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy owners that chased Nugent's five Week 1 field goals got burned, but the projection was accurate. He missed from 38, 49 and 55 yards out -- the first time he's missed three times in a game in his career. Nugent, now with an absurd 10 attempts through two games, will be a boom-or-bust kicking option against the Titans in Week 3. He was an 81.8 percent kicker coming into this season.

Bengals re-signed K Mike Nugent to a two-year contract.

Cincinnati opted for Nugent over Josh Brown, who kicked them to the playoffs last season. Nugent, 31, made 19-of-23 field goals last season before landing on injured reserve in Week 17 with a right calf injury. The Bengals have now re-signed all of their specialists.
Sun, Mar 10, 2013 01:36:00 PM

Bengals placed K Mike Nugent (calf) on injured reserve, ending his season, and promoted CB Chris Lewis-Harris from the practice squad.

The Bengals will move forward with Josh Brown at kicker. Lewis-Harris is an undrafted rookie. Nugent, 30, donned Cincinnati's franchise tag in 2012, collecting a guaranteed $2.654 million. He'll be a free agent this offseason.
Fri, Dec 28, 2012 02:03:00 PM

Bengals K Mike Nugent (calf) practiced in full Wednesday.

It's Nugent's first full practice since pulling his calf ahead of Week 14. We'll know he's ready to kick in Week 17 if the Bengals release Josh Brown, who has gone 8-of-9 on field goals while filling in.
Thu, Dec 27, 2012 09:58:00 AM

Bengals declared Mike Nugent (calf) inactive for Week 16 against the Steelers.

Josh Brown will continue to start with Nugent missing the last three games. The rest of the Bengals inactives are CB Dre Kirkpatrick, RB Dan Herron, FS George Iloka, and DT Devon Still. Kirkpatrick has yet to receive medical clearance from a Week 13 concussion and remains out indefinitely. Cedric Peerman is active, as expected.
Sun, Dec 23, 2012 11:54:00 AM

Bengals K Mike Nugent (calf) was downgraded to a missed practice on Thursday.

The Bengals expected their kicking decision to come down to a game-time call this week. It now looks like Josh Brown has the inside track to get the nod versus the Steelers.
Thu, Dec 20, 2012 03:07:00 PM

Bengals K Mike Nugent (calf) is considered questionable for Week 16.

Nugent has missed the last two games, but was limited in Wednesday's practice. During that time, replacement Josh Brown has gone 6-for-6 on field goals, including one from 52 yards out. Nugent shouldn't be considered a lock to get his job back even once 100 percent.

Bengals K Mike Nugent (calf) is expected to sit out Week 14 versus the Cowboys following the signing of Josh Brown.

With a Thursday night game on the docket for Week 15 at Philadelphia, Nugent could end up missing two games. The injury is believed to be only a tweak, so Nugent is not yet in danger of landing on injured reserve.

Bengals K Mike Nugent (calf) missed Wednesday's practice.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals will work out free agents Nate Kaeding and Josh Brown on Thursday, so it's possible Nugent is going to miss time. Cincinnati's "franchise player" over the offseason, Nugent is 19-of-23 on field-goal attempts this season.
Wed, Dec 5, 2012 05:42:00 PM

Bengals signed franchise player Mike Nugent to a one-year, $2.654 million contract.

Nugent, 30, will be fully guaranteed the salary for the 2012 season, and the Bengals are likely interested in a long-term deal. An early-career bust as a former second-round pick by Herm Edwards' Jets, Nugent has gotten his career on track recently. He converted 33 of his 38 field goal attempts last season. Nugent can't be expected to match that production from a fantasy perspective in 2012, but he's certainly got a very strong leg.
Wed, Apr 25, 2012 01:16:00 PM

Bengals assigned the franchise tag to K Mike Nugent.

The kicker franchise tag is estimated at $2.6 million to $2.7 million. Nugent, 30, nailed 33 of his 38 field goal attempts in 2011, good for a percentage of 86.8. He also had a stunning 36 touchbacks. Strong-legged and finally polished in terms of accuracy, Nugent has recovered perfectly from a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus suffered in his kicking leg in November of 2010.
