The Miami Dolphins claimed kicker Cody Parkey of Jupiter after he was waived by the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Parker was a Pro Bowler with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014, setting a franchise scoring record and NFL rookie scoring record with 150 points.

That season, Parkey converted 17 consecutive field goals, the second-longest streak in team history.

In the preseason, Franks made all 11 extra points and made a 56-yarder, but missed one short field goal.

Parkey has never missed a field goal 29 yards or shorter (17-for-17).

On field goals of 30-39 yards, Parkey is 21-for-23 (91 percent).

On field goals of 40-49 yards, Parkey 12-for-20 (60 percent).

On field goals of 50 or more yards, Parkey is 5-for-5 (100 percent).
