Browns make a change at kicker, promote Cody Parkey

Posted by Michael David Smith on September 14, 2020, 1:25 PM EDT

After one game and zero made kicks, the Browns are making a change at kicker.

The Browns are signing Cody Parkey from the practice squad to the active roster and he will be their kicker on Thursday night against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The decision to make a change is no surprise after Browns kicker Austin Seibert missed both of his attempts in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens. Seibert missed both an extra point and a 41-yard field goal attempt. Neither of his two kickoffs reached the end zone and both were returned beyond the 25-yard line.

The Browns chose Seibert in the fifth round of last year’s NFL draft. Drafting a kicker is always a gamble, and this one didn’t pay off.

Parkey played three games for the Titans last year and has previously played for the Eagles, Dolphins and Bears, as well as a prior stint with the Browns. He’s best remembered for his infamous “double doink” miss for the Bears against the Eagles in the playoffs.

His even more notorious mistake after the "double doink", was to go on national TV and downplay its significance. Also, went on record as saying football is not that important in his life. A Pro athlete and his job is not important to him? Who does he think he is? Albert Hainesworth? But, yet he is trying to get another job in that same sport he feels is not that meaningful to him?

LOL

Yet another miscue from the Ryan Pace Free Agency Circus.

Charles Leno, Jr. and Cody Whitehair are SOLID!

2021 is the year the Bears put it all together! (2020 is a scrub)

Go Bears!

Kickers and left handed hurlers in baseball will have long lucrative careers regardless of talent.
