The Chicago Bears have released kicker Cody Parkey.

Parkey missed a 43-yard field goal against the Philadelphia Eagles that would have sent the Bears to the Divisional Round.

Parkey also missed three extra point attempts and eight field goal tries in 2018.

The Bears signed Parkey, 27, to a four-year deal that included $9 million in guaranteed money last March. The team will have to carry $4,437,500 worth of dead salary-cap money once Parkey is cut when the new league year begins.
