NFL's Chicago Bears next month will cut kicker Cody Parkey, known for his infamous "double-doink" kick in both the regular season and the playoffs, reports Friday.
The team intends to cut ties with Parkey when the NFL free agency period begins on March 13, Reuters reported.
Parkey, 27, missed out on a 43-yard, potentially game-winning trial in the Bears & NFC wildcard playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles last month, Yahoo Sports reported. The kick was known as a "double-doink" because it hit both an upright and a cross bar in the target post as time expired.
Replays later showed that the ball had also been blocked by an Eagles defender.
It was the sixth time during the season that a Parkey kick had hit upright and then the crossbar, according to the Guardian.
