Is Randy Bullock still a Bengal?

Randy Bullock is leaving the Cincinnati Bengals after more than four seasons. Despite the fact that Bullock is joining his sixth team, the Bengals, he has played 62 games for them, which is more than half of his career. "Thank you, Cincinnati!" he tweeted.

He was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. However, he spent most of his time on the practice squad and did not make any appearances for the team. In 2009, he joined the St. Louis Rams and appeared in six games before being released at the end of the season. He then signed with the New York Giants but was released at the end of training camp. Later that year, he signed with the Cincinnati Bengals and has been there ever since.

Bullock's best season so far came in 2016 when he recorded 566 yards and five touchdowns through the air. He also had 52 carries for 271 yards and three more scores on the ground.

However, he wasn't able to follow up on such a great season and hasn't yet reached the same level of performance again. Still, he is one of the best quarterbacks in town and will be expected to start right away.

Is Randy Bullock hurt?

Bengals kicker Randy Bullock is undergoing tests, but the left calf issue that caused his late return Sunday is "nothing serious," a source said. Bullock is in the final year of a two-year, $4.2 million extension he signed with the Bengals in September of 2018. He made all of his field goals last season and was perfect on 34-for-35 attempts in the regular season.

Bullock missed three games last season with a knee injury, but he still finished first in netting points per game (3.8). His absence left rookie Uchenna Nwosu with an opportunity, as he responded by going 33-for-37 in the remainder of the contests.

The 27-year-old Bullock has been one of the most reliable kickers in football over the past few seasons. He's made at least 93 percent of his attempts each year since 2015, including 95 percent or better three times. Last season, he was perfect on 34-for-35 attempts in the regular season before missing a 43-yarder in the playoffs vs. San Francisco. The previous week at Houston, he nailed a 53-yard attempt in a 24-21 win.

In 2016, he became just the third rookie in NFL history to make at least 15 field goals, joining Morten Anderson (1962) and Matt Prater (2013). Anderson went on to win the AFL Championship with Denver that year.

How long has Bullock been with the Bengals?

Bullock has been the Bengals' placekicker since midway through the 2016 season, when he was claimed off waivers by Cincinnati from Pittsburgh. In 2019, he made 27 of 31 field goal attempts (87.1 percent). He also had 95 yards on 20 punt returns and one touchdown.

Bullock was drafted by Pittsburgh in 2014 after spending three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys as a placekicker. He holds the NFL record for most consecutive missed field goals without being replaced (nine), which he set in 2015 while with Dallas. The last time a kicker missed multiple field goals in a game was 2006 when Jason Elam did so twice vs. the New York Jets.

After missing two field goals in his first game with Pittsburgh, Bullock went on to make 88 of 93 attempts (95.6 percent) over the next two seasons. In 2016, he led the NFL in scoring with 105 points and was named to the Pro Bowl. Last year, he was 9-for-9 on field goals over the final four games of the season after starting 0-for-5 in early September. He ranked third in the NFL in scoring.

Bullock played college football at South Carolina, where he was a three-time All-American and won the Lou Groza Award given to the nation's best kicker.

Is Randy Bullock good?

Bullock has been a good-not-great Bengals kicker in terms of statistics. Bullock has a career-long range of 57 yards from 2019. In 2020, he was 3-for-5 from beyond 50 yards, including a 55-yarder. His deep accuracy has also improved over his career. In 2018, he was 16-for-20 on field goals longer than 40 yards; this year, he's 9-for-11.

However, his overall performance has declined since 2016, when he made all 37 of his field goal attempts. Since then, he is 90-for-101 in regular season play and 2-for-2 in the playoffs.

He has never missed an extra point during his NFL career.

Bullock was drafted by the Bengals in second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He replaced Mike Nugent, who had been released after missing two field goals in Week 17 last season that would have won or lost games.

During his college career, Randy Bullock was not only one of the best placekickers in college football, but he also played defense as a safety. After going 0-for-1 on field goals in 2009, he was 4-for-4 in 2010 before getting injured. He returned in 2011 and made all 30 of his kicks before losing his job to Matt Prater.
