Six missed extra points was all the Bengals could tolerate.

Mike Nugent, the Cincinnati kicker who is a horrific 23-for-29 on extra points this season, was cut by the Bengals today. He finishes the season with a 79.3 percent extra point rate, the second-lowest extra point percentage in NFL history for a kicker with that many attempts.

Coincidentally, Nugent also went 23-for-29 on field goals this season. The 34-year-old Nugent has been a competent kicker for most of his career, but this year the misses on extra points were more than the Bengals could bear.

Cincinnati signed Randy Bullock to serve as its kicker for the final three games of the season.
