Well that didn’t take long. The New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with free agent kicker Cody Parkey on the same day they released Aldrick Rosas, bringing in another temp hire to fill in for the injured Wil Lutz. Lutz should be considered week-to-week in his recovery from groin muscle surgery late in the summer, so Parkey is probably only here for a game or two until he’s healed up.

Parkey, 29, entered the league in 2014 and has kicked for seven different teams in his career, including two stints with the Cleveland Browns. He’s 121-for-143 on field goals in his 83-game NFL career with a personal-best of 54 yards, also going 197-of-209 on extra-point tries. But he’s best known for the “double doink” missed field goal against the Philadelphia Eagles when he kicked for the Chicago Bears in 2018, ending their playoff bid.
