But after missing six field goals and six extra points last season, the Bengals released him on Dec. 13, and signed Randy Bullock.
Nugent set Bengals single-season records for points (132) and field goals (33) in 2011, and he ranks third behind in career points (718), field goals (157) and consecutive field goals (15). He ranks second on the team’s all-time list for field goal percentage (81.77).
A second-round pick out of Ohio State in 2005, Nugent began his career in New York with the Jets. In 12 NFL seasons, he is 236 of 292 on field goals and 344 of 355 on extra points.
