Richard Rowe-US PRESSWIRE

According to the Oklahoma State twitter account, the Bengals have agreed to terms with punter and kickoff specialist Quinn Sharp.

Sharp, who earned All-America honors as a kicker and punter, led the nation in touchbacks in four straight seasons and his career 45.9 yards/punt average led all NCAA players in 2012, also setting a school record. Sharp also converted 84.7 percent of his field goal attempts, second among active players in the NCAA last year.

From NFL.com:

Sharp has displayed ability as both a kicker and a punter. He’s earned All-American honors as both a kicker (2011, 2012) and punter (2010) from the Football Writers Association of America during his career, and was the first specialist to be selected first-team All-Big 12 at both positions. He was named the conference’s Special Teams Player of the Year in both 2011 and 2012 for his efforts.

Sharp has averaged over 46 yards a punt for three straight years (46.3 in 2012 and 2011, 46.2 in 2010) and converted 22 of 25 field goal attempts (88 percent) is his first year working on placements, followed by going 28 for 34 (82 percent) his senior season.
