Eagles Sign Caleb Sturgis, Place Cody Parkey On IR

sturgisThroughout the preseason and into the first three weeks of regular season play, Eagles’ kicker Cody Parkey never looked quite right.

Now, after reinjuring his groin against New York, the Eagles have decided to shut Parkey down and end his season.

To replace Parkey, the team has signed former Miami Dolphin Caleb Sturgis.

Sturgis was a little unreliable for Miami last season, connecting on six of 10 attempts from 40 yards and beyond. From 50+, he was 3-6.

The situation is a little concerning. With Parkey down, this has the potential to become a situation where the Eagles go through a revolving door of veterans. Sturgis is still a very young player, and hopefully a change of scenery will help do him some good.

  • Yikes.

    You would think, with a lousy last name like Sturgis, his parents would have done him a favor and given him a better first name than Caleb.

  • A 5 Year Vet from the University of Florida..
    Sturgis has a very Strong Leg (75% of Kickoffs have gone for Touchbacks which is a nice rate) but he lacks accuracy and has only covered 77% of all FG Attempts which is not good.. The other concern I have is that he’s from Florida and still lives there and not sure how he Kicks once the weather turns bad and cold and that ballets slick.. I believe Chip will ride out his inconsisten FG’s as long as his Kickoffs are strong which Parkey has been lacking all year which has impacted their Coverage Teams on Special Teams so far this Year which have not been very good…
    We may see more 2 Point Conversions as well as the Season moves forward
