Hobson: Don't Be Surprised If Bengals Make Inquiry For PK Kris Brown

Several weeks ago, Bengals place kicker Aaron Pettrey was working part-time at a store, selling Buckeyes gear "stocking merchandise and ringing up sales while waiting for some team to give him a chance." After Mike Nugent tore an ACL in his knee, the Bengals called Pettrey to give him that chance and he played in his first NFL game against the Buffalo Bills last week.

Making a 19-yard chip shot and missing a 43-yard field goal wide left because "he didn’t play the wind correctly", Pettrey missed a 27-yard chip shot that would have tied the game with over six minutes left in the third quarter.

Having a 50% conversion rate isn't what you'd call, ideal. In fact, it might be a good idea for Pettrey to call his former employer several several weeks ago to see there's still an opening.

According to Geoff Hobson, the Bengals could make an inquiry on former Chargers place kicker Kris Brown.

Don’t be surprised if they at least make an inquiry about veteran kicker Kris Brown, cut by the Chargers on Saturday.

There's also the possibility that the Bengals could make a run for a drunk kicker The Situation former Steelers place kicker Jeff Reed, who was of some interest before he declined to sign with anyone just before the Bengals signed Pettrey.
