CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Bengals have re-signed place kicker Mike Nugent for two years, preventing him from becoming a free agent.
No terms of the deal were announced Sunday.
A nine-year veteran, Nugent has been with the Bengals for three seasons. A calf injury kept him out of the team's last four games of 2012 and its playoff loss to Houston.
In 2011, Nugent set a Bengals records for points with 132 and field goals with 33 in one season. He tied a Cincinnati record with a 55-yard field goal against Oakland last season.
Nugent has made 83.8 percent of his field goals as a Bengal, the second-best career percentage in club history.
