According to Pelissero, Parker’s new contract is worth up to $13 million with incentives.
Parker’s future in Miami has been in question for a few years and he was a popular name leading up to the trade deadline last year. However, it appears as though the new regime in Miami wants to give him a chance to show what he can do in their system.
Parker, 26, is a former first-round pick out of Louisville by the Dolphins in the 2015 NFL Draft. He played out the final year of a four-year, $10.876 million rookie contract and made a base salary of $1,918,164 in 2018.
The Dolphins picked up Parker’s fifth-year option last year that was set to pay him $9,387,000 for the 2019 season.
In 2018, Parker appeared in 11 games for the Dolphins and caught 24 passes for 309 yards receiving and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 50 receiver out of 117 qualifying players.
