Bears Working Out Kickers

After the dreaded “double doink” that eliminated the Chicago Bears in the playoffs, they are officially looking elsewhere for another kicker. While it was not expected for the Bears to release Cody Parkey after the playoff miss, they were not happy with his recent TODAY Show appearance. In case you missed it, Parkey took a very “me not we” stance.

Kevin Garnett would be ashamed.

Parkey is still on the roster, but the Bears are set to work out 6-7 kickers today including Blair Walsh, Nick Folk and the best kicker in Kentucky history, Austin MacGinnis. I am not trying to be biased, but I am very partial to MacGinnis getting this job.

Right now, anything would be better for the Bears. Cody Parkey hit the uprights 7 times during this past season (counting the double doink as 2). Meanwhile, MacGinnis is drilling 60 yarders and remaining unemployed. He proved numerous times how clutch he is at UK so let’s give him a shot in the NFL.

After MacGinnis kicked a 40+ yard FG for a 40-38 win over Mississippi State.
