Incumbent Browns K Austin Seibert missed a field goal and extra point in Sunday’s loss so it appears Cleveland will have a quick hook for him.
In fact, Cleveland will actually waive Seibert to make room for Parkey on the active roster, per Mary Kay Cabot.
Parkey was previously on Cleveland’s practice squad.
Parkey, 28, originally signed on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn back in May of 2014. However, he was traded to the Eagles after a few months in exchange for RB David Fluellen.
Parkey had brief stints with the Eagles, Browns and Dolphins before signing a four-year, $15 million contract that included $9 million guaranteed with the Bears in 2018. Chicago designated Parkey as a post-June 1 cut last offseason following his infamous missed field goal in the 2018 playoffs.
Parkey signed with the Titans in 2019 but was released after just a few games.
In 2019, Parkey appeared in three games for the Titans and made all three of his field goal attempts and was 5-6 on extra points.
