Bears release kicker Cody Parkey

14 March 2019 01:45

The Chicago Bears released experienced NFL kicker Cody Parkey on Wednesday.

The Bears were expected to release Parkey at the start of the new league year despite signing him to a four-year deal worth $15million before last season – making him the league's fourth-highest paid placekicker.

Parkey missed a career-high seven field goals in the 2018-19 season. His crucial double-doink in the wild-card round ended the Bears' postseason run with a 16-15 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in front of a stunned home crowd.

Chicago made the move all-but-official last week by signing free-agent kicker Chris Blewitt to an undisclosed deal.

The team also tendered contracts to all three of their exclusive free agents, including defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris, outside linebacker Isaiah Irving and offensive lineman Rashaad Coward.
