Dolphins bringing back WR Parker

Parker and the Dolphins on Tuesday afternoon were closing in on a new two-year, $10 million contract that could pay him as much as $13 million if he hits all of his incentives, sources tell the Miami Herald. The contract includes no guaranteed money beyond the first year.

The new deal supersedes Parker’s fifth-year option, which was to pay him $9.4 million in base salary this year.

He was never going to get that, not with his injury history (he’s missed 10 games in his career due to a litany of maladies) and production (just nine touchdowns in four seasons).

But Chris Grier still believes in Parker’s talent, and Brian Flores does too. Plus, Parker wanted to remain in Miami, even after some drama with Adam Gase last season. Gase refused to play Parker in several games last year even though Parker believed he was healthy enough to go. That prompted Parker’s agent Jimmy Gould to roast the Dolphins’ previous coach on the record.

“Parker is not only healthy but wants to help this team win and the only real question that should be asked is how does Coach Gase justify his own incompetence,” Gould said after the Dolphins’ Oct. 21 loss to the Lions. “They averaged only 6.1 yards per pass catch. They needed Parker who is completely healthy and was in full participation all week and in warm ups this morning. “Parker is not only healthy but wants to help this team win and the only real question that should be asked is how does Coach Gase justify his own incompetence,” Gould said after the Dolphins’ Oct. 21 loss to the Lions. “They averaged only 6.1 yards per pass catch.
