Bengals re-sign K Mike Nugent

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Bengals re-signed K Mike Nugent before his contract had been set to expire Monday, and without a new deal he would have become an unrestricted free agent as of Tuesday.

Nugent (5-10, 190; Ohio State) is a 10th-year NFL player in 2013, in his fourth season with the Bengals. In 2011, he set Bengals records for points (132) and field goals (33) in a season. In 2012, his 55-yard field goal on Nov. 25 vs. Oakland tied a Bengals record, equaling a distance set only once previously in club history. He has made 83.8 percent of his field goals as a Bengal, the second-best career percentage in club history.

Nugent missed the last four games of last season, plus the Wild Card playoff, due to a calf injury suffered in practice on Dec. 5.

His hometown is Centerville, Ohio (Centerville High School), and he left Ohio State with 22 school records.
