Two days after missing his sixth field goal of the season and having a point after attempt blocked – the fourth straight game in which a PAT was missed – the Cincinnati Bengals finally ran out of patience with Mike Nugent.
On Tuesday afternoon, the club released the 12th year veteran and signed Randy Bullock.
In 13 games, Nugent converted a career-low 79.3 percent of his extra point attempts. Bullock was with the Pittsburgh Steelers from Dec. 4-12 as an injury replacement for Chris Boswell, going 3-for-3 on field goals and 1-for-1 on point after attempts. He began the year with the New York Giants, going 2-for-3 on PATs.
After Nugent missed his third straight extra point Sunday in Baltimore, head coach Marvin Lewis said in his Monday news conference that the club won’t bring in kickers to work out.
