The Bengals today re-signed K Mike Nugent. His contract had been set to expire tomorrow, 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.
