Professional career[edit]

Indianapolis Colts[edit]

After going undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, Parkey signed with the Indianapolis Colts.[1] He was traded by the Colts to the Philadelphia Eagles for running back David Fluellen on August 20, 2014.[2]

Philadelphia Eagles[edit]

After a stellar preseason, Parkey beat out former fourth-round pick Alex Henery to be the Philadelphia Eagles kicker for the 2014 season.[3]

In 2014, Parkey set a new NFL rookie scoring record. [4] His 150 points broke Kevin Butler's 29-year-old record of 144 points set in 1985 with the Chicago Bears. Parkey tied with Stephen Gostkowski for the highest average of points scored per game in the 2014 NFL season. Parkey was named a first-alternative for the 2015 Pro Bowl. On January 18, 2015, Parkey replaced Gostkowski in the Pro Bowl due to the Patriots' involvement in Super Bowl XLIX.[5]

On September 28, 2015, Parkey was placed on injured reserve with a groin injury.

On September 3, 2016, he was waived by the Eagles.[6]

Cleveland Browns[edit]

On September 24, 2016, Parkey signed with the Cleveland Browns after an injury to Patrick Murray.[7] In his first game against the Miami Dolphins on September 25, he missed three field goal attempts, including a potential game-winning 46-yard attempt on the final play of regulation. Parkey was waived by the Browns on September 2, 2017.[8]

Miami Dolphins[edit]

On September 3, 2017, Parkey was claimed off waivers by the Miami Dolphins.[9] During Week 2, Parkey was awarded AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for kicking for 13 of the Dolphins 19 points, including a 54-yard game-winning field goal.[10]
