With three kickers currently on the roster — Johnathan Brown is the other — the Bengals have been rotating each practice with two kickers going head to head while the other watches in order to get keep the final segment of practice from running too long. Two weeks ago Brown and Bullock kicked. Last week it was Elliott and Brown. And Tuesday was the first look at what is expected to be one of the most interesting position battles in training camp between Elliott and Bullock.

“It is a competition, but I’m just going out there and focusing on what I can do,” Elliott said, noting that it reminds him some of his first season at Memphis when he came in and won the job as a freshman.
“Freshman year was a little nerve racking,” he said. “I mean I came in on scholarship, so it was kind of a situation where they expected me to win the job, but obviously it wasn’t given to me. There were a couple other guys there already, so I just had to go in there and compete and win the job.”
The same scenario will play out later this summer.
