CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Bengals signed kicker Austin Seibert off of waivers from the Cleveland Browns, the Bengals announced Tuesday.

Seibert was cut Monday after missing a field goal and an extra point in the Browns' 38-6 opening game loss against Baltimore on Sunday.

According to a report from ESPN, the Bengals plan to stick with Randy Bullock as their starting kicker heading into Thursday's game against Seibert's former team.

Bullock said his calf cramped up in the final quarter of Sunday's 16-13 loss against the Chargers, leading to a missed 31-yard field goal which would have tied the game late in the fourth quarter.

In that game, he hit on field goals from 50 and 43 yards.
