Bengals PK Mike Nugent has signed his franchise tender with the team, keeping him on the roster for the 2012 season.

Nugent was franchised after making 33-of-38 field goals last season and 33-of-34 point-after tries. For his career — which included stops with the Jets, Buccaneers and Cardinals before arriving in Cincinnati — he has made nearly 81 percent of his field-goal attempts.

Signing the franchise tag guarantees Nugent a salary of $2.65 million in 2012.
