Indications have been that Parnell was likely to reach the open market, and given that available cap space, it would not be surprising to see him land a sizable contract in the end.
Parnell, 28, has played out his four-year, $4.63 million rookie contract and is now in line for a sizable raise for the 2015 season. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 21 offensive tackles in the league out of 84 qualifying players.
We have Parnell listed as the No. 30 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
