After a stellar preseason, Parkey beat out former fourth-round pick Alex Henery to be the Eagles kicker for the 2014 season.[3]

In 2014, Parkey set a new NFL rookie scoring record. [4] His 150 points broke Kevin Butler's 29-year-old record of 144 points set in 1985 with the Chicago Bears. Parkey tied with Stephen Gostkowski for the highest average of points scored per game in the 2014 NFL season. Parkey was named a first-alternative for the 2015 Pro Bowl. On January 18, 2015, Parkey replaced Gostkowski in the Pro Bowl.[5]

On September 28, 2015, Parkey was placed on injured reserve with a groin injury.

On September 3, 2016, he was released by the Eagles.[6]

Cleveland Browns

On September 24, 2016, Parkey signed with the Cleveland Browns after an injury to Patrick Murray.[7] In his first game against the Miami Dolphins he missed three field goal attempts, including a potential game-winning 46-yarder on the final play of regulation.
