Mike Nugent (born March 2, 1982 in Centerville, Ohio) is an American football placekicker for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League. He was drafted by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at Ohio State.
Mike Nugent attended Centerville High School in Centerville, Ohio. As a senior kicker, he converted on 5 out of 7 field goal attempts from beyond 50 yards (24 of 27 altogether), kicked a 55 yard field goal (career long) twice, and was 29 out of 29 PAT attempts.
During Nugent's four-year career at Ohio State he broke or tied 22 school records, including most points in a career by any player at OSU (356). He made 72 of 88 field goal attempts and 140 of 143 PAT attempts. He was a consensus All-American and he won the Lou Groza Award in 2004, as the nation’s top kicker. He became the first kicker in Buckeye history to earn team Most Valuable Player.
New York Jets
Nugent was drafted by the New York Jets in the second round and played four seasons with the team.
During the opening game of the 2008 NFL season, Nugent injured his quadriceps following an extra point. To replace Nugent the Jets signed Jay Feely, who performed so well in the position that he became the Jets' starter while Nugent, who eventually recovered from his injury, was forced to stay on the bench.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
An unrestricted free agent in the 2009 offseason, Nugent signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on March 4 and won the job over Matt Bryant in the preseason due to Bryant's injury. After converting just two of his first six tries (2 blocked) through four games, Nugent was released by the Buccaneers on October 5.
Nugent signed with the Cincinnati Bengals on April 23, 2010. He competed with Dave Rayner throughout training camp and the preseason for the Bengals starting job. Nugent eventually won the competition when the Bengals released Rayner on September 4, 2010, after Nugent made 54 and 52 yard field goals in the team's final two preseason games. Nugent was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for the month of September by going 8 for 8 on field goal tries in the Bengals' first three games of the season.
