Bears Worked Out P Michael Palardy

Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reported earlier in the day that the Bears brought in free agent P Michael Palardy on Friday.

Chicago was forced to bring in Spencer Lanning last week with Pat O’Donnell out due to a knee injury. It’s worth mentioning that O’Donnell is is listed as probable for their Week 5 match up against the Chiefs.

Palardy, 23, originally signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee back in May of last year. He later caught on with the Raiders before signing a future/reserve contract with the Rams in January. Unfortunately for Palardy, he was among their final roster cuts.

During his college career, Palardy appeared in a total of 46 games, converting 37-of-50 (74%) of his field goal attempts to go along with 5,024 punting yards (42.9 average). 50 of his punts were downed inside the 20-yard line.
