According to NFL Draft Bible, a third undrafted free agent is linked to the Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona State place kicker Thomas Weber. Converting 78.2% of his field goal tries in four seasons with the Sun Devils, Weber is an interesting signing, though we're not confused by it.

If true and the Bengals are signing Weber, this will give the roster three place kickers heading into training camp. This isn't actually out of the norm. Last year it was a competition between Mike Nugent and David Rayner. This year it could be a competition between Weber, Nugent and Clint Stitser.

Nugent is coming off a major knee injury; by most accounts he's recovered and kicking the ball well now. Yet while Nugent has a booming leg, he only converted 78.9% of his field goal attempts -- a percentage lower than Shayne Graham's worst season. In five games with the Bengals, Stitser converted 87.5% of eight field goal attempts, though missing two point after touchdown attempts.

The Bengals need competition and even insurance at place kicker, making this reported signing an understandable one.
