Giants Ink Former Bengals Kicker Mike Nugent

Mike Nugent, a 13-year veteran who has played in 158 regular-season and postseason games, was signed by the Giants today, Michael Eisen of Giants.com reports. He will vie for the job with Aldrick Rosas, who has never played in a regular-season game but had been the only kicker on the Giants’ roster.

Nugent, 35, has played for the Jets, Tampa Bay, Arizona, and for the previous seven seasons, the Cincinnati Bengals. He has made 236 of 292 field goal attempts (80.8%) and 344 of 355 extra point tries for 1,052. That ties him with Nick Folk and Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith for 50th on the NFL’s career list.
