Nugent Signs Franchise Tag Deal

Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - Bengals kicker Mike Nugent has signed the team's one year offer which designates Nugent as the team's franchise player.  In 2011 Nugent set franchise records for points and field goals in a season.

"We're happy Mike has signed in advance of our offseason camps," said head coach Marvin Lewis, "and this does not preclude our continuing to talk to Mike and his representatives about reaching a longer-term agreement. Mike has been a fine performer for us."

In his second season in Cincinnati Nugent was good on 33 of 38 field goal attempts.
