Bengals acquire P Plackemeier on waivers

CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Bengals acquired punter Ryan Plackemeier on waivers Friday from the Washington Redskins.

Seattle drafted Plackemeier in 2006, and he was the Seahawks' regular punter for two seasons. He was waived in September and signed by Washington. He punted 55 times for a 41.7-yard average during 10 games with the Redskins.

The terms and length of Plackemeier's deal were not released.

Kyle Larson has been the Bengals' regular punter since 2004. In a similar move last February, Cincinnati signed free-agent punter Danny Baugher to a two-year deal, then re-signed Larson.

Larson averaged 39.5 yards a punt last season and twice tied a team record with 11 punts in a game. His 100 punts in the season broke the Bengals' record of 94 by Daniel Pope in 2000.
