Jets Have Shown Interest In S Ron Parker

     

Connor Hughes of the Athletic reports that the Jets have expressed interest in former Chiefs S Ron Parker.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Parker to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.

Parker, 30, originally signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Newberry back in 2011. He spent two years in Seattle before signing on with the Chiefs for the 2013 season.

Parker was in the fourth year of his five-year, $25 million contract that included $8 million guaranteed when the Chiefs released him in a move that freed up $4,984,375 of available cap space.

In 2017, Parker appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs and recorded 67 tackles, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 84 safety out of 87 qualifying players.
