Emily Cunningham

Emily Cunningham is the stunning and loving wife of NFL kicker, Mike Nugent. Her hubby has been a well-known name for quite some time in the NFL.



Born, Michael Nugent on March 2, 1982, he is a 12-year veteran with 236 career made field goals. Nugent, an Ohio native, played kicker and QB while at Centerville High School. At Ohio State University, he won the Lou Groza Award –and honor given to the top kicker in college football.

He was the New York Jets No. 47 overall pick back during the 2005 NFL Draft. Nugent has a career 80.8 field goal rate in stints with the Bengals, Cardinals, Buccaneers and Jets.

The longest stint of his career came in Cincinnati, where he signed in 2010. He played seven total seasons for the Bengals, connecting on 157-of-192 efforts. During that stretch, he was 53-of-69 from the all-important 40-49 yard range.

He was waived last December after a slew of misses, including six botched PATs. The 35-year-old spent the offseason with the New York Giants before being released during final cuts. Most recently, he will replace Dan Bailey after being signed by the Dallas Cowboys.
