Chicago Bears waive kicker Chris Blewitt
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have waived Chris Blewitt, leaving them with two kickers as they try to replace Cody Parkey.
Blewitt left Pittsburgh as the school’s career scoring leader with 363 points after making 55 of 79 field goals and 198 of 204 extra points from 2013-16. But he has not played in the NFL.
The Bears announced the move on Wednesday.
Elliott Fry and Eddy Pineiro remain on the roster. Neither has kicked in an NFL game.
The Bears let Parkey go after one rough season that ended with a missed field goal off the left upright and crossbar in a wild-card loss to Philadelphia at Soldier Field. Chicago won the NFC North at 12-4 last year.
