FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have signed veteran kicker Mike Nugent to fill the spot created after Stephen Gostkowski was placed on injured reserve.

Nugent’s signing was announced Thursday. The 37-year-old was drafted by the Jets in 2005, spending four seasons in New York. He’s also played for Arizona, Tampa Bay, Cincinnati, Chicago, Dallas and Oakland.

He has appeared in 164 regular-season games, converting 81 percent of his field-goal attempts (253 of 311) and 363 of 377 extra points. He appeared in three games with the Raiders last season, connecting on all six of his field-goal attempts, while going 4 of 5 on extra points.

New England (4-0) visits Washington (0-4) on Sunday.
