Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker is drawing trade interest, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. With the trade deadline coming on Tuesday, inquiring teams have just ~48 hours to get a deal done.

Despite Parker’s underwhelming first four seasons, the Dolphins re-upped him twice. First, they locked him up through 2020 via a two-year, $10MM agreement. Then, towards the end of 2019, they inked him to a three-year extension worth up to $40MM. The jury is still out on the latest contract.
In 2020, Parker registered just 12.6 yards per catch, a sharp drop from his 2019 watermark of 16.7 yards on average. Through the first seven weeks of this season, injuries limited Parker to just four games, 17 catches, and 242 yards. However, Parker returned with a vengeance against the Bills today — as of this writing, he’s leading all ‘Fins WRs with eight catches for 85 yards.
Despite the health issues, Parker profiles as an intriguing playmaker for contenders in need of a mid-season boost. He’s also relatively inexpensive, since he’d only be owed the prorated portion of his $7.75MM base salary in 2021.

Don’t normally care about this, but why are the comments closed on the Garoppolo article? Is there some controversy I’m unaware of, or do the comments on Garoppolo articles usually get heated or something?
I was wondering the same thing.
Comments should never be closed. Everyone just comments on the next post.
It might bring up a mildly upsetting memory to Tom Brady.
Simple answer my friends.. Zack links wrote the article. Not only is he the worst writer here at trade rumors but he also isn’t smart enough to open the comments section. Been saying it for months FIRE ZACK LINKS
At least he opened this post for comments. 🙂
Come to the Patriots!
Falcons have to be interested with Calvin Ridley stepping away. They have Patterson and Pitts and not much after that
Garoppolo will back on the Patriots once Lance is the #1 starter.
