Announces retirement

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-20

Parker announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Two months after signing a one-year contract with the Eagles, Parker has had a change of heart on a 10th season in the league. The 31-year-old cited spending more time with his family as the primary factor in his decision. He spent his first seven seasons in Miami before playing the previous two in New England. The Louisville product's most productive season came in 2019, as he tallied 1,202 receiving yards and nine touchdowns on 72 receptions for the Dophins. He was projected to compete for a role behind A.J. Brown (knee) and DeVonta Smith at wide receiver in the upcoming season.

Links up with Eagles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-12

Parker and the Eagles are in agreement on a one-year contract, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Frank suggests the Eagles will only have to pay Parker something around the veteran's minimum, with New England in line to cover most of his 2024 compensation. The Patriots reportedly are set to release Parker on Wednesday at the start of the 2024 league year, despite his $3.2 million base salary being fully guaranteed. The 31-year-old has never lived up to his status as the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but he does have 5,660 receiving yards through nine season and should be in the mix for Philly's No. 3 WR job behind A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. None of the guys that filled that role for portions of last season -- Julio Jones, Quez Watkins, Olamide Zaccheaus -- is under contract with the Eagles for 2024.

Set to be released

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-11

The Patriots have informed Parker that they will release him Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The report notes that Parker has been given permission to talk to other teams in the meantime. The veteran wideout is coming off a 2023 campaign in which he caught 33 passes on 55 targets for 394 yards in 13 regular season games. In the wake of Parker's looming departure, JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle), Kendrick Bourne (knee) and Demario Douglas currently head New England's WR corps, with additions to the unit presumably slated to arrive via free agency and/or the draft.

Logs 33 catches during 2023 season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-08

Parker finished the 2023 season with 33 catches on 55 targets for 394 yards in 13 games.

In his second year with New England, Parker didn't catch any TD passes, while working in a passing offense that struggled to find consistency. The 30-year-old is under contract with the Patriots through the 2025 campaign, but with plenty of turnover expected following a 4-13 campaign, it's way to early to get a read on Parker's chances of putting together a bounce-back effort next season.

Suiting up Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Parker (ribs) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Parker, who exited last weekend's loss to Buffalo due to a rib injury, was a limited participant in all three of New England's practices this week, but he'll be available for the Patriots' season finale. In the process, he figures to handle a starting role on the outside against a tough Jets secondary. In 12 games to date, Parker has caught 32 of his 51 targets for 388 yards, a pace that has limited his fantasy utility to deeper formats despite steady playing time.

Questionable after limited practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Parker (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Parker was a limited participant in all three of New England's practices after exiting the Week 17 loss to Buffalo due to a rib injury. If he suits up, Parker will likely occupy a starting role on the outside, though a matchup with a Jets secondary that has allowed the fewest catches, yards and touchdowns to wide receivers coupled with snow in the forecast suggest his opportunities could be limited Sunday.

Limited Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Parker (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Parker always seems to be limited throughout every practice week, so this is nothing new for him. He picked up the ribs injury in last Sunday's loss to the Bills. There will be more updates on Parker's practice status Thursday and Friday.

Hurts ribs Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Parker exited Sunday's game against the Bills with a rib injury.

Before leaving the contest, Parker caught one of his two targets for 15 yards. While he's sidelined Sunday, Demario Douglas, Jalen Reagor and Tyquan Thornton are available to handle the Patriots' WR duties.

Heavily involved again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-24

Parker recorded four receptions on five targets for 65 yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Broncos.

Parker continued to play a key role in the Patriots' offense with Juju Smith-Schuster (ankle) and Hunter Henry (knee) both inactive. He made a pair of vital receptions in the second half, the first of which went for 30 yards late in the third quarter and set up a touchdown three plays later. Parker then tacked on a 27-yard gain with under a minute left in the final quarter to set up the game-winning field goal. Overall, he now has at least four receptions in each of his last three games while racking up over 40 yards in each contest in that span.
