The Facts: According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the Dolphins are closing in on a new two-year contract with Parker.
Diehards Line: It's a chance for the former first-round pick to capitalize on his high potential with a new regime. It's something that wasn't going to happen under the former regime. Remember, the Dolphins haven't received the expected dividend from their initial investment (the 14th overall pick in 2015), leading to speculation the talented-but-underachieving wideout would move on. Indeed, many have been expecting a breakout season for Parker for the past two or three years, but the former Louisville star has never morphed into the No. 1 receiver the Dolphins hoped he would be. He battled some injuries in 2018 and ended up with just 24 catches for 309 yards, but now he'll get a clean slate with the incoming coaching staff.
