Former NFL kickers Mike Nugent (New York Jets) and Billy Cundiff ( Dallas Cowboys) tried out for the Ravens at their Owings Mills training complex Tuesday, but no signings were announced by the team.

Steve Hauschka has made eight of 11 field-goal tries in his first season as Ravens kicker but had critical misses against the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 18 and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Both missed kicks hooked left. The kick against the Vikings was to win the game as time ran out.

"Steve works really hard; he's really got a lot of talent. He's our best option," coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday night on his weekly radio show on WBAL.

This is the second time Nugent has tried out for the Ravens.
