Arizona releases K Mike Nugent

The return of Neil Rackers made Nugent expendable. From AP-

The Arizona Cardinals have released kicker Mike Nugent and added defensive end Jason Banks to the active roster.


Nugent was signed because Neil Rackers has been bothered by a groin injury. He was released by Tampa Bay on Oct. 5 after he missed two field goals in a 16-13 loss to Washington.

I think it is safe to call Nugent a draft bust. Few kickers get that label, then very few are selected in the 2nd round of the NFL draft(#47 selection 2005 draft by the NY Jets) and go through 3 teams in less than 5 seasons of pro football.
