Cody Parkey tried 23 field goals as a Miami Dolphin and made 21 of them, which is 91.3 percent, which is about as good as it gets.

Parkey grew up in Jupiter as a Dolphins fan, but a deal he was offered by the Chicago Bears appears to have been too much to pass on.

So who could possibly replace Parkey? Many teams feel you can always get a kicker — but should Miami sign one of these kickers?

Hey — Blair Walsh is from Boca Raton, which is even closer to my house.

Let’s sort some of the available kickers by career field goal percentage. And we’ll also outline their percentage from 50+ yards and age:

Kai Forbath — 30 years old; 85.9 percent; 65 percent from 50+

Chandler Catanzaro —27 years old; 84.4 percent; 54 percent from 50+

Cairo Santos — 26 years old; 84.1 percent; 54 percent from 50+

Caleb Sturgis —28 years old; 81 percent; 54 percent from 50+
