Might keep Henery too... in season competition? We will need to make a cut after 4 weeks to bring Johnson back...

henery is out....i havent been following this too closely but did they really hate henery so much that a guy comes in makes a few kicks and BAM starter?

seems odd to hand him the job so quickly. maybe an impressive resume?

Henery's lack of leg likely the biggest issue...too few Tbs and poor on FGs over 45

It was Henery's shitty kickoffs that killed him. He is an above average field goal kicker but is the worst in the league on kickoffs, so might as well go with the stronger leg.

Parkey is playing with house money at this point. I don't think its possible for parkey to be so bad during the season that i think, "Man, I wish we had Alex Henery back"

Henery's career long field goal is 51, he's not exactly money from 40-49 and he can't kick the ball out of the end zone. At worst Parkey gives you whatever Henery did, plus the chance at a long field goal and a touchback every now and then - at best, he's a huge upgrade.
