The 10 years lengthy search for a kicker in Tampa Bay is predicted to go on this off-time. Quite a few persons about the league foresee a feasible reunion concerning Matt Bryant and the Buccaneers arrive free agency, but there will of class be other possibilities.
The Bears reportedly approach to release Cody Parkey following thirty day period. The kicker’s “double doink” on a prospective sport-winning subject aim finished the team’s playoff operate final time. https://t.co/UujUx89PhU

The only point a lot of followers know Parkey for is his blunder in the playoffs from the Philadelphia Eagles. If he did not clank the kick off equally posts, we would have viewed the Chicago Bears progress to the divisional spherical of the playoffs. Let’s not overlook nevertheless, if it wasn’t for Parkey, the Bears very likely would have under no circumstances even been in that sport. Parkey did connect on all a few of his subject aim makes an attempt prior to lacking the sport winner.
With that staying reported, there is no question that soon after signing a 4 year, $15 million greenback contract prior to 2018 with the Bears that Parkey was a enormous disappointment final year. He only produced 76.7% of his kicks soon after earning 91.3% in 2017 with the Dolphins.
Over his occupation, Parkey is an 83.9% kicker and was chosen to the pro bowl in 2014, his first year in the league.
Although I really do not believe Parkey is the ideal alternative out there, I do believe he is a stable kicker who just had a terrible year in 2018 and I would not be totally opposed to the Buccaneers hunting his route in 2019.
