The Bears signed kicker Elliott Fry to a three-year contract Friday, the team announced.

He joins Redford Jones and Chris Blewitt on the roster as the Bears try to replace Cody Parkey. Chicago worked out Caleb Sturgis, Younghoe Koo and Nick Rose earlier this week.

Fry, 24, played four seasons at South Carolina from 2013-16 and spent this spring with the Orlando Apollos in the now-defunct Alliance of American Football. He converted all 14 field goals he attempted with the Apollos, with a long of 44 yards.

Fry walked on at South Carolina and left as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 359 points.

  1. Pretty darn sad that the Bears cut Chris Blewitt because of his name. Too much backlash from baby Bears fans!!
    Funny thing he’s better than this guy and Parkey put together but the Name thing…..sad Bears organization.

    What?

  3. “…better than this guy and Parkey put together…Well yeah, ’cause adding Parkey to the equation drgs down the curve.”

  4. A 3 year contract for a kicker that might not make the cut? Seems unlikely. I think the Bears have already decided on Fry as long he don’t Blewitt.
