Kicker Mike Nugent signed his one-year tender offer as the Cincinnati Bengals' franchise player on Wednesday. Nugent recovered from knee surgery and set team records with 132 points and 33 field goals last season, helping the Bengals to a wild card playoff spot. He was an unrestricted free agent after the season, but the Bengals used their franchise tag on him March 2. Coach Marvin Lewis said the team will continue negotiating on a multiyear deal with Nugent. Nugent is an eighth-year player out of Ohio State. The team voted him as its 2011 Ed Block Courage Award winner after he came back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, suffered in the second half of the 2010 season.
