DeVante Parker Announces Retirement

After signing with the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency, WR DeVante Parker has announced his retirement

The long-time Miami Dolphins’ wide receiver, DeVante Parker, has announced his retirement from the NFL. This is a surprise considering he recently signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency. However, Parker cited wanting to spend more time with his kids and he will hang it up following nine NFL seasons. He was a productive receiver over the course of his career, but he was never able to meet expectations after being selected No.14 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft. The highlight of Parker’s career came in 2019 where he accumulated 72 receptions, 1202 yards and 9 touchdowns (each a career high).

 

For fantasy football purposes this retirement won’t have a major impact. Parker is multiple years removed from being a consistent fantasy starter, and he was merely going to be a depth piece for the Eagles. Nonetheless, the Eagles are thin at receiver after stars AJ Brown and Devonta Smith. This could open up an opportunity for players such as Parris Campbell, Ainias Smith, and Johnny Wilson.

Patriots Place WR Tyquan Thornton On IR
10 months ago

The New England Patriots placed wide receiver Tyquan Thorton on the injured reserve list with a shoulder injury.

New England’s sophomore second-round wide receiver will start the season on the IR and miss at least four weeks. No details on the injury have been reported other than it’s Thornton’s shoulder and it happened sometime during the preseason. Former Panther backup QB Matt Corral will take Thornton’s spot on the 53-man roster.

Belichick drafted Thornton 50th overall in 2022, but the second-year Baylor standout has yet to make a mark in the NFL. He played in thirteen games last season but earned only 22 targets for 247 yards and 2 touchdowns. New Patriot offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Bill O’Brien gave fantasy gamers the confidence to make Thornton a popular last-round pick, but it’s time to move on.
