The Eagles brought in extra competition for Alex Henery on Wednesday in the form of rookie kicker Cody Parkey. The Eagles acquired Parkey in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts by sending running back David Fluellen to the other side.
Undrafted out of Auburn, Parkey signed with the Colts following this spring's NFL Draft. He went 2-for-2 on field goals with the Colts during the preseason, including a 45-yarder. At Auburn, Parkey finished his senior season 14-of-19 on field goals while ranking first in the nation with 69 touchbacks.
Both Fluellen and Parkey were thought to have been waived by their respective former teams earlier in the day, before both sides agreed on a mutually beneficial deal.
