Parkey was waived by the Titans on Saturday.
Ryan Succop (knee) was activated off injured reserve, prompting the release of Parkey. The 27-year-old was nearly perfect in his three starts following the release of the incumbent kicker, Cairo Santos, converting on all three of his field-goal attempts and five of his six extra-point attempts through Weeks 6-8. Parkey, who might be forever synonymous with the "double doink" following last year's playoff loss with the Bears, might have done enough with Tennessee to erase the bad memories long enough to find another job.
Parkey made both of his field-goal attempts and also converted all three of his extra-point attempts in Week 8 against Tampa Bay.
After missing an extra-point in Week 7, Parkey returned to perfection against Tampa Bay. He connected on two lengthy field goals -- the first from 51 yards and the second from 42 -- and played an integral role in the team's win. Despite this impressive performance, Parkey may not see any more action as the Titans' kicker, considering Ryan Succop (knee) appears close to returning from injured reserve.
Parkey made his lone field-goal attempt and went 2-for-3 on his extra-point attempts in Week 7 against the Chargers.
Parkey got the Titans on the board with a 45-yard field goal to cap the team's first offensive possession. However, he hit the right upright on his second-extra point attempt of the game, though it didn't cost the team a win. Parkey will likely serve as the team's kicker again in Week 8 against Tampa Bay, though Ryan Succop (knee) is eligible to return from injured reserve in Week 9.
Parkey did not attempt a field goal or extra point during Sunday's 16-0 loss to the Broncos.
The Titans' offense was shut out in Parkey's team debut. An early deficit kept Tennessee chasing touchdowns all game, eliminating any chance for the 27-year-old to put his leg to the test. Parkey is not an intriguing fantasy option heading into a Week 7 contest against the Chargers.
The Titans signed Parkey to a contract Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Parkey's last NFL stint with the Bears came to a tumultuous end last spring, but the 27-year-old will get another chance at a kicking job in Tennessee, where he'll replace Cairo Santos. Over parts of five NFL seasons spent with Philadelphia, Cleveland, Miami and Chicago, Parkey has converted 83.9 percent of his field-goal tries and 95.5 percent of his extra-point attempts.
Parkey is expected to sign a contract with the Titans, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Parkey is in line to replace Cairo Santos, who the Titans cut Monday, on the active roster. If Parkey indeed lands in Tennessee this week, he'll serve as the team's interim kicker until at least Week 8, when Ryan Succop (knee) is eligible to return to the field.
The Bears will let Parkey go when the 2019 league year begins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Parkey will make $3.5 million guaranteed on his 2019 contract despite his release, all that follows his miss in the playoffs that cost the Bears a chance at the NFC Championship Game. He should find plenty of suitors for his services in 2019.
Parkey connected on three of four field-goal attempts Sunday in the Bears' 16-15 loss to the Eagles in the wild-card round.
Parkey's kicks from 36 and 29 yards out in the second quarter gave Chicago its first points of the game before he added to that total with a 34-yard chip shot with 14:13 left in the fourth quarter. After the Eagles took the lead with a touchdown with less than a minute remaining, the Chicago offense did its job to set Parkey up for a 43-yard attempt with seconds left on the clock. The 26-year-old connected on what ultimately proved to be a warmup attempt when Eagles coach Doug Pederson called a timeout to "ice" the kicker, but Parkey was unable to convert on the subsequent try. Eagles defensive tackle Treyvon Hester was able to get a finger on Parkey's kick to knock it just off course, as the ball caromed off the left upright and crossbar before falling short. It's a devastating end to a frustrating campaign for Parkey, who will surely face competition for his job in 2019 after missing seven field goals and three extra points during the regular season.
Parkey converted a field goal and extra point in Chicago's Week 17 win to end the season with 111 points.
Parkey missed an extra-point attempt, continuing his inconsistent accuracy over the second half of the season. Although he made just 76.7 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2018, he's signed through 2021, so he's a good bet to be the Bears' starting kicker next season.
Parkey missed his only field-goal attempt while making a pair of extra points in Chicago's Week 16 win over the 49ers.
Parkey has missed six field-goal attempts over his last 11 games, and he's been held to one or fewer field goals on eight occasions this season. Not only has he been an erratic kicker, but he's had significant weekly downside, making him a tough player to use in what could be a low scoring game against the Vikings in Week 17.
Parkey connected on his only field-goal attempt while adding three extra points in Chicago's Week 15 victory over the Packers.
Parkey's field goal was a 24-yard chip shot, giving him six points on the day. He's only had more than two field goals in a game once over his last 11 games, making him a low-ceiling lineup option.
Parkey knocked down two of three field-goal attempts while adding an extra point in Chicago's Week 14 victory over the Rams.
The missed field goal was Parkey's first in four games, and it kept him from reaching double-digit scoring. He's averaging six points over his last five games, making him a below-average fantasy option.
Parkey connected on a pair of field goals along with three extra points in Chicago's 30-27 overtime loss to the Giants.
Parkey knocked down short field goals of 21 and 36 yards, and he's now been perfect over the last three weeks after having some accuracy issues earlier in the campaign. He's averaging six points over the last four games, and his lack of consistent upside makes him an uninspiring fantasy option.
Parkey kicked a field goal while adding a pair of extra points in the Bears' 23-16 win over the Lions.
For the second week in a row, Chicago opted to go for a two-point conversion early, and that's an obvious concern for a fantasy kicker who's been a borderline starting option all season. Although he's had four double-digit scoring performances this year, he's scored five or fewer points in four of his last seven games, making him a difficult player to trust in fantasy lineups.
Parkey connected on three field goals (33, 41 and 48 yards) in the Bears' 25-20 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.
After missing four kicks (two extra points and two field goals) last week, Chicago went for two-point conversions after each of its touchdowns in this game. However, when called upon, Parkey was perfect on all three field-goal attempts, so he ended up with his second game with at least nine points over his last three contests. If Chicago continues to attempt two-point conversions after touchdowns, it would significantly limit Parkey's upside.
Parkey will not be replaced after a lackluster performance Sunday according to head coach Matt Nagy, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun Times reports. "Everybody in this room has had a bad day," Nagy said Monday.
Parkey struggled in Sunday's win over the Lions, missing both field-goal attempts as well as two of his four extra-point tries. However, Nagy remains confident in the fifth-year pro, who has spent time with four different teams. Parkey is now 13-of-18 on field-goal attempts this season, which is the third-worst percentage this season of kickers currently on a roster.
Parkey missed both of his field-goal attempts as well as two of his four extra-point chances in Chicago's 34-22 victory over the Lions on Sunday.
Parkey was atrocious, hitting the upright on each of his field-goal attempts while ending the game with a season-low two points. With Chicago hoping to be in the hunt for a playoff spot, it's possible that the Bears will begin looking for another kicker, as Parkey has missed four of his last eight field goals. Should he remain on the roster, his recent inaccuracy makes him a tough player to trust in fantasy lineups.
Parkey connected on a pair of field goals along with five extra points in the Bears' 41-9 victory over the Bills.
While scoring 11 points, Parkey posted his second-best performance of the season while breaking a streak of three games with seven points or fewer. With just one game in which he scored fewer than six points, he has emerged as a high-floor option at kicker.
Parkey converted a field goal and three extra points in Chicago's 24-10 victory over the Jets.
Parkey missed one-of-two field-goal attempts, keeping him from having a decent fantasy performance. After being a strong fantasy option over the first-four games of the season, he's now made just two field goals over his last three games, and he's been a below-average performer during that span.
Parkey connected on his only field-goal attempt while converting four extra points in Chicago's loss to New England.
Parkey has been held to fewer than six points just once all season, and he's become a high-floor weekly lineup option.
