Moving on from DeVante Parker could net the Miami Dolphins a solid return
There were rumors swirling that the Miami Dolphins were shopping wide receiver DeVante Parker at the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama this past week. The big issue with shopping the former first-round pick? The team didn’t have a head coach.
Now with McDaniel in the role, the team could seriously look at the proposition.
DeVante Parker’s 2019 season led the team to sign him to a long-term deal. Since his spectacular 2018 season, Parker has failed to stay healthy and produce at a high level for the team.
In 2021, Parker played in 10 games catching 40 passes off 73 targets for 515 yards and 2 touchdowns. Parker wasn’t extremely consistent, he had 0 targets against the New Orleans Saints, and wasn’t a major factor at points.
Dealing Parker might be difficult because he has only played in a full 16 game season once in his seven-year career and his deal. If the team can find someone to send Parker in a deal to, the team could land a second or third-round pick.
Parker could still be a major contributor in a new scheme, but moving on from Parker could benefit the Dolphins as they are facing these new changes.
