Bears name Eddy Pineiro as kicker to start season

It's official:Eddy Pineiro will be the Bears placekicker to start the season.

Head coach Matt Nagy shared the news withreporters Sunday Rashaad Penny Jerseys , saying,He deserves it.

Pineiro won the kicking job in a wide-open preseason competition that had all the drama of a reality show. The Bearsreleasedkicker Cody Parkey in the offseason after he mi sed a 43-yard field goal in DeeJay Dallas Jerseys a playoff lo s to the Eagles (the NFL officially ruled the kick was tipped). Looking for a replacement, ChicagoacquiredPineiro, who went undrafted in 2018 out of the University of Florida, from the Raiders in May. They alsobrought in eight kickers to the team's rookie minicamp.

The kicking competition played out throughout the preseason Cedric Ogbuehi Jerseys , with the media reporting the situationwith coverage normally reserved for a quarterback battle.

The Bears waived kicker Elliott Fry on Aug. 18, leavingPineiro as the lone remaining kicker on the roster. Still, there remained the po sibility the team would see what kickers were available after the Nick Bellore Jerseys final NFL roster cuts to see ifPineiro would keep the job. In the meantime,Pineiro saw his fortunes rise (he nailed a 58-yard field goal in the third preseason game) and fall (he mi sed a PAT in the preseason finale).

We have fought through to this point right now, Nagy said after the final preseason game (via the ).I just like where hes at. Well discu s it and decide is that the route we want to go. And if it Al Woods Jerseys is, then we just need to have a little bit of patience … Hopefully he is somebody we end up going Jake Curhan Jerseys with and we stick with and he wins us games.

The Bears open the season at home Thursday night against the Packers.
