Bullock happy for opportunity with Bengals

Randy Bullock knew his stint in Pittsburgh would be short. He’s hoping the same will not be the case in Cincinnati.

The Bengals signed Bullock on Tuesday after waiving veteran Mike Nugent, meaning his first game will be Sunday against a Steelers team that cut him Monday.

“They were very open with me when I was in Pittsburgh and said whenever (Steelers kicker Chris Boswell) was healthy, he would kick,” said Bullock, who kicked in one game for the Steelers, going 3 of 3 on field goals and 1 of 1 on extra points. “My goal was to come in there, compete, do a good job and hopefully land somewhere else.”

And that’s what happened, although he didn’t expect it to be occur so quickly.

“I had just got back from Pittsburgh, had enough time to do some laundry and pack up and get on the road again,” the Houston native said. “I’m glad I got the opportunity. I’m very excited about it. I’m here to perform at a high level, help this team win and hopefully stick.”

Bullock will be the first Bengals player to wear No. 4 since kicker Aaron Pettrey in 2010.
