The Lions and Bullock are finalizing a contract that is expected to be done by Thursday night, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Detroit didn't waste any time identifying a contingency plan after long-time kicker Matt Prater inked a two-year deal to join the Cardinals on Wednesday. Matthew Wright, the only kicker currently on the Lions' roster, has four career field-goal attempts to his name. The soon-to-be 25-year-old has converted on all four tries, but Bullock would bring with him the experience of 202 NFL field-goal attempts. Detroit would foreseeably be making a horizontal move in transitioning to Bullock, as his 83.2 percent conversion rate is identical to that of Prater.
Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus Baltimore, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
It's the fourth straight healthy scratch for the 31-year-old, who's fallen out of favor as Cincinnati's kicker. Bullock went 21-for-26 on field goals and 24-for-25 on PATs in 12 games this season. Austin Seibert will continue handling kicking duties for the Bengals on Sunday.
Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.
Bullock will continue to be a healthy scratch, and Austin Seibert will operate as the Bengals' starting kicker for the time being.
Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Bullock is a healthy scratch in favor of Austin Seibert once again. Eliminated from the playoffs, the Bengals are giving Seibert a trial run to close out the season. Seibert made his lone extra-point attempt in last week's loss to the Cowboys.
Austin Seibert will get the start ahead of Bullock again in Week 15 against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Seibert only had one extra-point attempt in this week's loss to the Cowboys, so the Bengals want to give him another chance. They know what they have in Bullock, so it makes sense to see if Seibert can do any better.
Bullock (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
The 30-year-old missed a 53-yard try last Sunday in a loss to the Dolphins, dropping him to an 80.8 percent conversion rate on the 2020 campaign -- Bullock's worst success rate since his first active NFL season of 2013. Former Brown Austin Seibert gets the Week 14 nod in Bullock's place.
Bullock missed his lone field-goal attempt but made his only extra-point try in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Dolphins.
Bullock tried a 53-yard field goal with 1:00 remaining in the second quarter, but he pushed it wide left. The Bengals didn't cross midfield again until their final drive of the game, which eventually ended with an interception. Bullock's accuracy is a major concern, having missed two of his last five field-goal tries. However, the larger concern is that the offense doesn't have much of a pulse without Joe Burrow (knee), and Brandon Allen (chest) could now also miss some time. Next week's game against the Cowboys is favorable for any offense, but Bullock is tough to depend on in fantasy settings.
Bullock made a 44-yard field-goal attempt and two extra-point tries in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Giants.
This may be the story of the Bengals' offense in a post-Joe Burrow world, as they crossed the 50-yard line just twice all afternoon. A 103-yard kick return provided Bullock one of his two extra points Sunday, and he was good from 44 yards in the second quarter. It'll be tough to depend on Bullock moving forward, especially against Miami's fierce defense in Week 13.
Bullock made just one of three field-goal attempts and missed his only extra-point try in Sunday's 20-9 loss to Washington.
Bullock was perfect over the previous three games, but Sunday was ugly for the veteran kicker, although he did connect on a 53-yarder in the second quarter. The 30-year-old's job security is surely in question once again, but if he keeps his job, he'll need to calibrate before a Week 12 matchup against the Giants. His upside took a hit in this game, however, as the offense figures to slow down without quarterback Joe Burrow (torn ACL) in the picture.
Bullock made a 37-yard field goal and his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 36-10 loss to the Steelers.
Bullock's opportunities were scarce, as the Bengals crossed midfield just twice all game. He was perfect once again, however, and he's been impressive all year, connecting on 19 of 21 field-goal attempts, including eight from beyond 40 yards, and all 21 extra-point tries. Bullock is now 11th in the league with 79 total points.
Bullock made his lone field-goal attempt and all four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 31-20 win over the Titans.
The 30-year-old put the Bengals on the board with a 33-yard field goal during the first quarter, and he came through on all four PATs for a modest seven-point outing. Bullock has strong numbers at the halfway point of the season, going 18-for-20 on field-goal attempts and 20-for-20 on extra-point tries, though a matchup with Pittsburgh in Week 9 could spell trouble for the Cincinnati offense.
Bullock made both field-goal attempts and all four extra points in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Browns.
Bullock connected on a 37-yard field goal in the second quarter and converted a chip shot from 23 yards out on the first drive of the second half. Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow has reinvigorated this offense and continuously puts the team in scoring position, but the Bengals struggle to convert in the red zone, finding paydirt on just 50 percent of trips, 29th in the league. That bodes well for Bullock, who has made at least two field goals in six of seven games thus far. He'll look to keep it up Week 8 against the Titans, which have allowed 25.5 points per game this year.
Bullock went 2-for-3 on field goals and converted three extra points Sunday against the Colts.
Bullock missed his first field goal since Week 1, as he hit the right upright on a 48-yard attempt. However, he was able to knock through attempts from 47 and 55 yards out. He also remains perfect on extra-point tries this season, improving to 12-for-12 on the year.
Bullock made a 38-yard field goal -- his lone attempt -- in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Ravens.
Bullock hit three or more field goals in three straight contests entering Week 5, but the game didn't work in his favor Sunday. In the first half, the Bengals made it into Ravens' territory twice, turning it over on downs once and losing a fumble once. They didn't make it past the 50-yard line again until their final drive when Bullock hit a 38-yard field goal. It was an incredibly disappointing game for Bullock and the Bengals, and they have another tough matchup on tap in Week 6 against a Colts squad that's allowed 16.6 points per game.
Bullock made all four field-goal attempts and three extra points in Sunday's 33-25 win over the Jaguars.
Bullock has been perfect for three straight weeks, connecting on all 10 field goals and all eight extra points. He hasn't attempted a kick from beyond 50 yards in that stretch, but he did nail a 53-yarder in the season opener. The Bengals' offense is quite productive with Joe Burrow under center, so the opportunities should be here to stay, although a Week 5 matchup against the Ravens is a tough draw.
Bullock connected on three field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 23-23 tie against the Eagles.
For a second straight week, Bullock was perfect on field goals, nailing tries from 48, 31 and 25 yards. The Bengals' inefficiencies in the red zone are working to Bullock's benefit. It should start improving for the team soon, but this offense can produce enough to keep Bullock as a fantasy-viable option in Week 4 against the Jaguars.
Bullock converted all three of his field-goal attempts and nailed a trio of extra-point tries during Thursday's 35-30 loss to the Browns.
Bullock battled a calf injury leading up to Thursday's divisional contest, but he didn't appear hampered while on the field. His only missed field goal on the season came Week 1 and was caused by a calf strain he appeared to suffer mid-kick. Bullock will get the benefit of an extra three days to rest up before kicking against the Eagles in Week 3.
Bullock (calf) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Cincinnati listed Bullock as a limited participant on Monday's injury report due to a calf issue, which he picked up while missing what would have been a game-tying 31-yard field-goal attempt in the waning seconds of Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Chargers. Head coach Zac Taylor indicated earlier in the day that he planned to have Bullock serve as the Bengals' kicker for a Thursday Night Football matchup with the Browns this week, and the 30-year-old's ability to put in a full practice Tuesday suggests he's on track to do just that. The Bengals still claimed ex-Browns kicker Austin Seibert off the waiver wire as insurance behind Bullock, who has made 85.5 percent of his field-goal tries since joining Cincinnati late in the 2016 season.
Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said he expects Bullock (calf) to serve as the team's kicker Thursday in Cleveland, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. "Randy's our kicker," Taylor said.
Though Taylor said Monday that he didn't anticipate bringing in another kicker for Week 2, the Bengals did just that Tuesday, claiming Austin Seibert off waivers from the Browns. Rather than preparing him to kick against his former team, Seibert at this point just looks to be an insurance policy in case Bullock isn't able to move past the calf tightness he dealt with in the Week 1 loss to the Chargers. Bullock appeared to suffer the injury on his missed 31-yard field-goal attempt with seven seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, which prevented the Bengals from sending the game to overtime.
Coach Zac Taylor said Monday that he doesn't anticipate having to bring in another kicker despite Bullock (calf) being limited in practice, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
Bullock picked up a calf injury during the final play of Sunday's loss to the Chargers. The ill-timed injury caused Bullock to miss a kick that would have sent the game into overtime, but he was otherwise perfect while nailing two field goals and a single extra point. He'll have two more chances to practice in full ahead of Thursday's divisional matchup in Cleveland.
