In the aftermath of Cody Parkey missing, a now-infamous 43-yard field goal attempt against the Eagles in the Bears’ 16-15 NFC Wild Card loss, the Bears have been searching for a new kicker.

With John Baron II, Chris Blewitt, Elliott Fry and Redford Jones on foot at the Bears’ first day of rookie minicamp along with four other camp invitees, all attempted kicks from the dastardly distance of 43 yards and combined to go two for eight.

“Two for eight, that’s not good enough,” Nagy told reporters after the practice. “Now I will say this: We always look at the end result of what happened, which is 100 percent what matters, but as we’re learning, two of those eight holds and snaps, it wasn’t 100 percent. I’ll leave it at that. We’ve got to work through that. That’s why after today we’re not going to go out and make rash, brash decisions or anything. We’re gonna play it out.

As for the distance of 43 yards?

“They know loud and clear why,” Nagy said.


Currently the four kickers on the Bears roster have no NFL experience and they combined for just two field goals in eight tries

“We have a method to our madness,” Nagy said. “I think for us, just besides finding a kicker and being able to see what they can do in practice, we want to be able to see as much as we can in game situations as they handle that too. It’s one thing to go out there and bang eight for eight when it doesn’t really matter. But what about when it matters?

For some reason all  the Bears talk coming out of minicamp is about kickers. 

Yep,  we’re talking about kickers.
