DeVante Parker Reportedly Signing New Two-Year Deal With Dolphins

NFL free agency rumors: Dolphins re-sign DeVante Parker

The new deal comes as somewhat of a surprise, after the Dolphins unsuccessfully tried to trade Parker at last year's trade deadline.

The Miami Dolphins have agreed to a new two-year contract with wide receiver DeVante Parker, the team announced Tuesday.

The Dolphins had been expected to rescind the option for 2019 and let Parker become a free agent.

The contract is reportedly for $13 million over the two years. Obviously the new staff saw enough in Parker to keep him around at a much lower rate that his option of 9.7M. Former head coach Adam Gase had kept Parker on the bench a few times previous year, despite Parker believing that he was healthy enough to play.

Paker's most productive season was 2016.

Parker caught 24 passes for 304 yards and a touchdown last season for Miami. Gase's firing after the season opened the door for Parker's return.

But it's a new era in Miami under head coach Brian Flores and general manager Chris Grier. This move doesn't mean that the Dolphins are done looking for "depth" at the position considering Parker's injury history and that both Grant and Wilson are recovering from major injuries that put them on Injured Reserve to end 2018.
