- Lombardi adds that Parker might be the next player sent packing by Dolphins HC Adam Gase.
- However, a league source tells Adam Beasley that the Dolphins are not trying to trade Parker.
- Lombardi points out that the Dolphins said previously that they were not trying to trade Jarvis Landry and wanted to sign him to a long-term deal last year before sending him to the Browns.
Parker actually came up as a potential trade candidate during the preseason, but the Dolphins elected to hold onto him.
Parker, 25, is a former first-round pick out of Louisville by the Dolphins in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is entering the final year of a four-year $ 10.876 million rookie contract and is set to earn a base salary of $1,918,164 in 2018.
The Dolphins picked up Parker’s fifth-year option this offseason that will cost them $9,387,000 for the 2019 season. It’s worth mentioning that the fifth-year option is only guaranteed for injury.
In 2018, Parker has been limited to appearing in just one game and catching two passes for 40 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
