Mike Nugent’s return to the NFL might be brief.

The NFL Network reported Tuesday the Centerville native who was recently inducted into the Ohio State Varsity O Athletics Hall of Fame is being released by the New England Patriots after four games.

He is 5 for 8 in field goal attempts this season but made only 2 of 4 Sunday as the team beat the Browns 27-13.

Nugent is in his 15th season, a career that included seven seasons with the Bengals.
