Cody Parkey is bound for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
OK, maybe not... yet. But his cleats are, according to the team:
"The pair of cleats Parkey wore in the Eagles' Week 17 win over the New York Giants was packaged and shipped off to the Hall of Fame on Wednesday. In that final game of the season, Parkey set an NFL record for the most points by a rookie in a season. He also set the Eagles’ franchise record for most points in a season in 2014 with 150."
Pretty cool. As the team points out, Parkey's cleats will join the Eagles equipment that was sent to the Hall of Fame in 2013: Nick Foles' seven-touchdown game jersey (plus the ball) and LeSean McCoy's gear from his record-breaking performance in the Snow Bowl.
Philadelphia was very fortunate to get their hands on Parkey. He became a surprising answer to their unsettled kicker situation. Parkey finished his rookie season 32/36 (88.9%) from field goal range, which ranked tied for eighth best. His longest kick was 54 yards and he was a perfect 4-4 from kicks attempted from 50 yards or longer. Parkey made all 54 of his extra point attempts.
Here are the cleats:
