Cleveland Browns sign kicker Cody Parkey, move Patrick Murray to injured reserve
BEREA, Ohio– The Cleveland Browns signed former Philadelphia Eagles kicker Cody Parkey, the team announced on Saturday.
Kicker Patrick Murray, who came to Cleveland in the offseason, injured his knee on Friday and placed on the injured reserve. He appeared in two games, and was 1 for 2 on field goals and 3 for 4 on PATs.
Parkey, in his third NFL season, was signed as an undrafted free agent to the Indianapolis Colts in 2014. He was traded to the Eagles in the preseason.
Parkey set the rookie scoring record and was selected to the Pro Bowl. In 2015, he was put on the injured reserve with a groin injury. Philadelphia waived him this season.
