After Mike Nugent missed an extra point and field goal in the Bengals’ win over the Browns in Cleveland, a former player has a suggestion for the team.

Terrell Owens, who ended his career, with Chad Johnson, in Cincinnati, thinks the Bengals might want to re-sign his former teammate to finish out the season as the team’s kicker.

“Might wanna think about re-signing Ochocinco,” Owens Tweeted during the game.

Ochocinco has also suggested, though, jokingly, that the Bengals should sign him at kicker. The former Bengals wide receiver did complete an extra point back in the 2009 preseason.

Nugent’s missed extra point in the first quarter wasn’t his fault, as Kevin Huber had placed the ball flat on the turf, but, Nugent’s missed 36-yard field goal was on him.

With three games left this season and the Bengals’ playoff hopes essentially dead, the Bengals would be wise to bring in a new kicker this week. There’s really no reason not to.

If Clark Harris is healthy enough to play next week, maybe the Bengals can waive backup long snapper Tyler Ott and just keep two kickers on the roster, if they don’t want to part ways with Nugent.

Either way, Nugent, at a maximum, has three games left in Bengals stripes.
