The Browns are re-signing Parkey to a one-year contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
It's no understatement to say that Parkey's showing with the Browns last season revitalized his career. The 29-year-old converted 86 percent of his field-goal tries in 15 regular-season appearances, and he was perfect in each of the team's playoff games. After spending time on six different teams from 2015-2020, Parkey will now get to stick around a familiar situation and attempt to bring stability.
Parkey successfully converted his lone field-goal attempt and made both extra-point kicks in Sunday's 22-17 playoff loss to Kansas City.
Following a late-season stumble, during which Parkey missed kicks in three consecutive games, the placekicker was perfect in the final game of the regular season and two playoff contests. The Browns, familiar with Parkey when he kicked for the organization in 2016, brought him in to replace a shaky Austin Seibert in Week 2. Parkey stabilized the kicking game, finishing the regular season with 100 points while connecting on 86 percent of his FGA (19 of 22) over 15 games. The journeyman placekicker, who has spent the last six seasons on six different teams, becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
Parkey converted two of two field-goal attempts and six of six extra-point kicks in Sunday's 48-37 wild-card win over Pittsburgh.
Parkey had a shaky stretch during the weeks that led up to the regular-season finale, but he's righted himself nicely. He's nailed all 12 kicks in Week 17 and the wild-card round. The Browns move onto Kansas City next Sunday. The Chiefs were tied for 10th during the regular season with 22.6 points allowed per game.
Parkey made all of his kicks Sunday, connecting on his lone field-goal attempt and three of three extra-point kicks in a 24-22 win over Pittsburgh.
Parkey occupied a warm seat after missing kicks in three consecutive games. The matter did not rise to a point where the team considered replacing him, but the misses were a topic leading up to Week 17's win-and-in game. Parkey and the Browns will travel to Pittsburgh next week for a wild-card playoff game.
Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski expressed confidence in Parkey, who has missed kicks in each of the last three games, Scott Patsko of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Stefanski was asked if he's considering a change at placekicker and did not answer the question directly. "He knows what is expected of him. We are counting on him, and I have a ton of confidence in him," said the coach. Parkey missed three extra-point kicks and a field-goal attempt over the last three games.
Parkey made his lone field-goal attempt and one of two extra-point kicks in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets.
The failed extra point did not impact the final outcome, but Parkey has missed an extra-point kick in three straight games. He also missed a 39-yard field-goal try during that stretch. He had been hot from Week 2 through 13 -- 17-of-19 FGA, 33-of-34 XPA -- before this latest stretch.
Parkey did not attempt a field goal and made two of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Giants.
Parkey missed the third of nine kicks over the last two weeks, but he could be forgiven for this one. The extra-point attempt was pushed back to the 48-yard line due to a taunting penalty on the touchdown. Unlike last week's game against Baltimore, Parkey's miss Sunday was not a factor in the outcome. He'll look to right himself Week 15 on the road against the Jets, which rank 29th in fantasy scoring allowed to kickers.
Parkey missed his lone field-goal attempt and made four of five extra-point kicks in Monday's 47-42 loss to the Ravens.
Parkey missed a 39-yarder, his second miss from the 30 to 39 range, but overall he's been accurate and provided stability in the kicking game. He's made 85 percent of his field-goal attempts (17-of-20) and 95 percent of his extra-pointers (37-of-39) this season. Parkey and the Browns travel to New York next Sunday night for a game against the Giants' 10th-ranked scoring defense.
Parkey made two of two field-goal attempts and was successful on all five extra-point kicks in Sunday's 41-35 win over Tennessee.
The Browns' offense busted out in a big way Sunday, posting a five-week high in points to the benefit of Parkey, whose 11 points were the most since Week 5. This was the eighth time in 11 starts that he has not missed a kick. The Browns return home for a Week 14 match against Baltimore, whose defense ranks third in points allowed per game (19.5).
Parkey made two of two field-goal attempts and was successful on all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 27-25 win over the Jaguars.
Parkey has missed just three kicks all season and been successful on 88 percent (15-for-17) of his field-goal attempts. He ranks 25th in kicker scoring, albeit with one game fewer than most others, and averages 7.3 points per game.
Parkey was successful on two of three field-goal attempts and made his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Eagles.
Parkey missed the practice week while on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he was cleared over the weekend and continued to be a consistent scorer when called upon. Sunday's miss was a 47-yard try that was blocked, just Parkey's second misfire across 41 total kick attempts this season. The veteran has been a welcome salve to the inconsistent Austin Seibert, who was released after Week 1. Week 12 could be a favorable one for Parkey; the Browns are on the road in Jacksonville against the league's 30th-ranked scoring defense (29.8 PPG).
Parkey (undisclosed) has been activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Technically, Parkey will still have to test negative Sunday morning, but that appears to be a formality at this point. He was originally placed on the list after being considered a high-risk contact with a non-staff practitioner who tested positive earlier in the week. Barring any setbacks, look for the 28-year-old to take on his usual kicking duties.
Parkey (undisclosed) isn't present at Friday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Parkey remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but head coach Kevin Stefanski remains optimistic that the kicker will be activated Saturday, the first day the 28-year-old is eligible to return to team facilities. The kicker was initially placed on the COVID list Wednesday, alongside teammates Jack Conklin and Charley Hughlett. Cleveland would likely call up Matt McCrane from the practice squad in the event Parkey doesn't get activated prior to Sunday's game against the Eagles.
The Browns placed Parkey on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
In addition to Parkey, teammates Jack Conklin and Charley Hughlett were placed on the list, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network noting that the trio were high-risk close contacts of someone who tested positive. Parkey will head into quarantine and will need to continue to test negative for COVID-19 to have a chance at playing Sunday against the Eagles.
Parkey converted his lone field-goal attempt and one extra-point kick in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Texans.
Parkey's 41-yard, first-quarter field goal navigated windy conditions and turned out to be the difference. He's missed only two kicks this season, but the offense hasn't given Parkey many opportunities of late -- Cleveland's scored 10 or fewer points in three of the last four games.
Parkey successfully converted two of three field-goal attempts and did not have an extra-point try in Sunday's 16-6 loss to the Raiders.
Windy conditions contributed to a low-scoring affair in which throwing became a challenge. Parkey's miss from 37 yards, his first missed FGA of the season, would have brought the Browns within one score late in the game. The miss was hardly his fault as the ball went on a wild journey after leaving his foot. It headed for the middle of the uprights before extreme wind pushed it left, like a curveball, and clanged off the upright. Parkey and the Browns will return to action Week 10 at home against Houston following a bye.
Parkey was successful on his lone field-goal attempt and made four of five extra-point kicks in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals.
Parkey rebounded from a one-point effort last week to record seven points in the win. The extra-point miss, his first missed kick of any kind this season, came on the final score of the game with 15 seconds remaining. It gave the Bengals a slight window to kick a game-tying field goal instead of needing to go the length of the field, but the Browns strategically managed the clock and the kickoff to leave Cincinnati no option but a Hail Mary pass. Week 8 brings a potentially lucrative matchup against the Raiders, who rank 31st with 32.8 points allowed.
Parkey made his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 38-7 loss to the Steelers.
Parkey's leg was not needed as Pittsburgh kept the Browns' offense in check. Down multiple scores early, Cleveland was not in a position to settle for field goals, nor were they ever in position to even consider going for three points. This was the first time in four games that Parkey has not produced double-digit points. He'll look to bounce back Week 7 against the 1-4-1 Bengals.
Parkey successfully converted three of three field-goal attempts and three of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 32-23 win over the Colts.
Parkey has stabilized the Browns' placekicking since his arrival in Week 2. He has yet to miss a kick and recorded his third straight game of double-digit point production. He's scored 10, 11 and 12 points the last three weeks. Sunday's win was the fourth straight for the Browns, which have scored more than 30 points in each of the four games and averaged 37.5 during the winning streak.
Parkey converted two of two field-goal attempts and made all five extra-point kicks in Sunday's 49-38 win over the Cowboys.
Parkey, who scored 10 points in Week 3, produced his second consecutive double-digit scoring effort. He's solidified the kicking game since taking over for Austin Seibert following a Week 1 loss. Parkey's made 14 of 14 extra-point attempts and converted all four field-goal kicks. He's helped by the Browns offense, which ranks fourth in scoring at 31 points per game.
