Birds acquire another kicker

The Eagles brought in extra competition for incumbent booter Alex Henery and the ever-hopeful Carey "Murderleg" Spear on Wednesday in the form of Cody Parkey.

Philadelphia moved to acquire Parkey from 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. Parkey finished his senior season 14-of-19 on field goals while ranking first in the nation with 69 touchbacks.

According to multiple sites, 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.
