Caleb Strugis secured Philadelphia’s kicking job and was rewarded for it Wednesday morning.
Sturgis joined the Eagles last season to replace the injured Cody Parkey. He connected on 18 of 22 field goal attempts last season and was 6 of 8 on kicks of 40 yards or longer.
Sturgis ultimately beat out Parkey during training camp for this year’s job and was the more accurate kicker during the competition.
Sturgis has made 73 of his 93 career field goal attempts and is 26 of 41 on kicks longer than 39 yards throughout his career.
