Bears Sign Kicker Jay Feely

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- The Chicago Bears signed veteran kicker Jay Feely, the team announced Wednesday.

The signing comes after the Bears' usual kicker Robbie Gould was listed as questionable with a quad injury for the team's game Thursday night against the Dallas Cowboys (8-4).

The 38-year-old Feely has played for the Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, and Arizona Cardinals in his 13 NFL seasons.

For his career, Feely has connected on 82.7 percent of his field goal attempts (329 of 398). In 2013, while playing for the Cardinals, Feely hit 30 of 36 field goals, including 11 of 12 between 40-49 yards deep.

The Bears waived receiver/return specialist Chris Williams to make room for Feely.

Leon Halip/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- After a two hour rain delay to start the game, Robbie Gould's 38-yard field goal put the Bears (6-4) over the Baltimore Ravens (4-6) 23-20 in overtime on Sunday.

Matt Forte scored on a 14-yard screen from Josh McCown to put Chicago up 20-17 with 10:33 remaining, but Justin Tucker hit a 21-yard field goal at the end of regulation.

McCown finished the game 19 of 31 for 216 yards with a touchdown.

Bears Place Kicker Robbie Gould On Injured Reserve

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(LAKE FOREST, Ill.) -- The Chicago Bears placed kicker Robbie Gould on injured reserve with a left calf injury, and signed veteran Olindo Mare to a one-year contract to handle the kicking duties.

The 30-year-old Gould strained his left calf during warm-ups before Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He converted two extra points in the contest, but punter Adam Podlesh handled the kickoffs.

Gould converted 21 of 25 field goals this season and is ranked fourth all-time in the NFL in field goal percentage at 85.6 percent.

The 39-year-old Mare is a 15-year veteran, having last played for the Carolina Panthers in 2011.

Newton finished 20 of 39 for 314 yards and threw two interceptions.

"Had plenty of times where we could of scored touchdowns, missed throws, opportunities in the run game," said Newton after the loss.  "Here we are stuck in the same situation."
