The search for the next kicker of the Chicago Bears is officially underway, as the team met with LSU senior Cole Tracy at the Senior Bowl, reports Pro Football Weekly’s Eric Edholm.

Tracy, a five-foot-ten, 183-pound prospect from Camarillo, California, spent his three collegiate seasons at Assumption College before transferring to LSU for his senior year. He finished the 2018 season with an 87.9 field goal completion percentage, as well as a perfect 42-for-42 on extra points. Tracy was three-for-five from beyond 50 yards, with his longest kick being a 54-yarder against Miami in the first game of the year. He also nailed six of his seven attempts from 40 to 49 yards, and he missed just one field goal from 39 yards out or fewer.

Tracy will serve as the kicker for the South team on January 26. Oklahoma’s Austin Seibert will be the kicker for the North roster.

The Bears made it clear that they are actively searching for competition for Cody Parkey, and their visit with Tracy confirms that. The LSU alumnus could be an interesting target to watch out for in Round 7 or underrated free agency.
