Bengals Waive Kicker Mike Nugent; Ink Former Texans Kicker Randy Bullock

Mike Nugent

After more issues on Sunday against the Browns, today the Cincinnati Bengals have finally pulled the plug on kicker Mike Nugent, waiving him and signing former Houston Texans kicker Randy Bullock according to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Nugent has been the Bengals’ placekicker since 2010 but simply cost the team too many times this season, missing an unbelievable six extra points in 29 tries. He was somewhat more reliable on field goals with a 79.3 conversion rate. Nugent may struggle to find another kicking job in the NFL at age 34.

Bullock’s most recent stint was with the Steelers, where he stepped in as a last-minute replacement for the injured Chris Boswell two weeks ago. He has also kicked for bothe the Jets and the Giants. Bullock is a career 81.3 percent field goal kicker.
