THE WORD | Chicago Bears release Cody parkey

Cody Parkey will be released by the Chicago Bears this March.

This announcement comes after the Bears championship hopes came to an end after Parkey missed the 43-yard field goal that costs the Bears the game.

The Bears signed Parkey to a four year $15 million deal, meaning they still owe him $3.3 million.

Parkey is the third most inaccurate kicker in the league, with a percentage of 77% of successful field goals according to the Chicago Tribune.
