Nugent signs his franchise tender

National Football Post

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Mike Nugent has signed his one-year franchise tender, the club announced on Wednesday.

Nugent was given the franchise tag in February, and the Bengals indicated in a statement they are hopeful of reaching a long-term deal with Nugent. Nugent has until July 16 to sign a new deal or play for the franchise tender for 2012.

“We’re happy Mike has signed in advance of our offseason camps,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said, “and this does not preclude our continuing to talk to Mike and his representatives about reaching a longer-term agreement. Mike has been a fine performer for us.”
