Andrew Franks out in Miami with Cody Parkey on roster

When the Dolphins were awarded kicker Cody Parkey on a waiver claim Sunday, it seemed like just a matter of time before word of Andrew Franks‘ release would hit the wire.

That word came on Sunday afternoon. The Dolphins haven’t made an official announcement at this point, but Franks said farewell in a tweet that thanked the Dolphins for the chance to play for them.

Franks spent the last two seasons in Miami and went 29-of-37 on field goals. He also made 74-of-78 extra points, but the team obviously felt Parkey was a better choice for their kicking duties this time around.

Franks could get another look this week if someone feels the same way about their incumbent as the Dolphins felt about him. If not, he figures to be part of the kicking caravan that rolls into town whenever someone misses a few kicks during the regular season.

  1. The Dolphins cut Sturgis and kept Franks a couple of years ago and the Eagles signed Sturgis and cut Parkey and now the Dolphins signed Parkey and cut Franks.

  2. So Parkey missed a crucial field goal that would of allowed the Browns to beat the dolphins last year in Miami. Franks made an important fg to help the fins beat buffalo in OT on the road last year. Some how we decided to go with Parkey over Franks. Gase has admitted to trying to outsmart himself in the past…i feel like this could be one of those times.

  3. Funny. Parkey is the guy who missed the kick when Cleveland could have beaten Miami with a point blank FG at the gun and kept the pursuit to 0-16 going close until near the end of the season.

  4. Nothing to speculate. Parkey is 84.6% and Franks is 75.8%. However, the big story is Franks went 2 for 4 on 50yd+ and Parkey went 5 for 5! Needed a bigger leg and his Touchbacks were 100%. Case Closed.

    It’s not just the +50 mark, he was 2/5 from +40 last year and ranked 31st overall in each of the last 2 years. This is way overdue.
