Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan didn't react too kindly to being called a "fake tough guy" by Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson after Sunday's 14-7 loss. According to Ian Rapoport, Tennessee is expected to sign former Chicago Bears' kicker Cody Parkey. He then proceeded to whiff wide right from 36 yards, wide left from 53 and saw a 33-yard attempt blocked in the fourth quarter to boot.
"It was a very painful, extremely disappointing day", Santos, 27, said per the team's official website. "I don't feel sorry for myself, I feel sorry for my teammates and coaches that work hard all week, including myself".
It will mark Parkey's first shot at redemption after the Bears released him during the off-season following his "double doink" miss in the playoffs. A new home for Parkey, who worked out for them in early September.
