Sources told the NFL Network Friday that the Bears will part ways with the kicker, but the team will still owe him $3.5 million in guaranteed money on his 2019 contract.
Parkey became the Eagles’ starting kicker for two seasons and was a Pro Bowl selection in 2014. The franchise waived him Sept. 3, 2016. The kicker had short stints with the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins before signing a four-year deal with the Bears on March 14, 2018.
In his lone season with the Bears, Parkey converted 23-of-30 field goals (76.7 percent) and missed 3-of-10 kicks between 30-39 yards. He also missed three extra-point attempts.
The Bears suffered a 16-15 defeat against the Eagles in the NFC Divisional Round when Parkey’s 43-yard field goal bounced off the upright and crossbar as time expired.
