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.
