The Bengals will have a little competition for Randy Bullock this offseason.

On Tuesday, the Bengals signed kicker Tristan Vizcaino to a Reserve/Future contract. So far, is the only kicker other than Bullock that is set to be with the Bengals for the offseason.

Vizcaino (6-2, 202), a rookie from the University of Washington Huskies, was briefly with the Jets this past offseason. He even hit a 61-yard field goal during a minicamp session:

Vizcaino actually played punter occasionally during his college career with the Huskies. He spent his senior season as the primary kicker, though he did have to battle redshirt freshman Van Soderberg throughout the season and even briefly lost the job to Soderberg. Vizcaino missed three of his 51 extra-point attempts and converted just 12 of 19 field goals.

Vizcaino will not count on the team’s active list until Feb. 4, the Monday after the Super Bowl.

Here is who the Bengals have signed thus far to futures contracts:

  • TE Moritz Böhringer
  • K Tristan Vizcaino
  • S Demetrious Cox
  • C Brad Lundblade
  • TE Andrew Vollert
  • WR Kermit Whitfield
