Nagy defends Bears' kicker search amid backlash

Bears coach Matt Nagy defended how his team has conducted its search for a kicker after several of those who auditioned for the team criticized the process to Sports Illustrated.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears head coach Matt Nagy responded on Wednesday to an SI story that quoted former Bears kickers who questioned the team's unorthodox offseason approach to finding a replacement for Cody Parkey: "I understand – we brought in a lot of kickers that came in here. To me, I look at it as a positive, in the fact that we said we going to turn over every stone to find whoever's out there. We felt like we, at that point in time, when we brought in a bunch of kickers, we're going to test them all out and see what they can do. And then, within that time frame, we also put in some situations with the Augusta Silence early on to see how they could handle it. Is it exactly the perfect science?... Ryan [Pace] and I talk about no regrets, right? And we talk about it as a team, so at least we can look back and say we hopefully didn't miss out on somebody."
