NFL Roster Cuts: Bengals Select Mike Nugent Over Dave Rayner; Shayne Graham Released In Baltimore

Which place kicker will the Bengals take? Dave Rayner and Mike Nugent have been battling for the top billing as the team's primary place kicker since early summer. However, the battle was somewhat ceased when Nugent suffered a groin injury early in training camp, severely limiting his contributions early in the preseason.

Nugent converted three of his four field goal attempts, including two successful 50-yard attempts. Rayner, on the other hand, converted six of eight, doubling Nugent's output, though failing to make a field goal over 50 yards. According to Joe Reedy, the Bengals have selected Nugent as their place kicker, through multiple reports.

In other place kickers news, the Baltimore Ravens released former Bengals kicker Shayne Graham.
