In year four of his NFL career, former Cardinal DeVante Parker is reportedly on the trade block.
Per Michael Lombardi of The Athletic, Parker “might be the next player sent packing by head coach Adam Gase.”

Parker has had an up and down career thus far. There has been moments where he has shown flashes as a potential number one wide receiver for the Dolphins, including when he caught eight passes for 106 yards and a touchdown against the New England in 2016. But those type of performances aren’t consistently occurring for Miami.
Parker has played 44 games in his first four years in the league, recording 141 receptions for 1,948 yards with eight touchdowns. Injuries have plagued Parker’s career as he has yet to played a full season.
For what it’s worth, there are reports refuting the initial report from The Athletic. Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports that a league source denied the Dolphins are trying to trade Parker.
