Even though advanced stats show Parker was elite when given the opportunity he still wasn't being used properly in Adam Gase's extremely conservative style offense. Parker was more productive on a per catch basis in Philbin's offense even though he made notable improvements to his game this year. https://www.fanragsports.com/nfl/5-afc-players-might-need-change-scenery/ I hesitate to say Parker needs a change of scenery and leave it at that. He has been a solid producer in Miami and will likely see another decent bump in his production if he stays. Ryan Tannehill showed flashes of improvement last year in Miami, but he’ll probably never be the quarterback to test tight windows consistently, especially in the vertical portions of the field, where Parker really thrives. The quarterback’s increased aggressiveness last year boded well for Parker’s production, but the connection was still inconsistent. Adam Gase’s offense was fairly flexible last season, but the Dolphins rely on the short-intermediate passing game more than anything, which requires quick separation and detailed route runners to be successful. Parker has improved in this area, but his strengths are his abilities to make plays over the top of defenses and to dominate at the catch point, areas he has wowed in when given the chance at Miami. This offense may never be perfectly tailored to his best traits, and while Parker will still produce, a downfield scheme like Arizona, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis (I’d kill for this), or even Pittsburgh would be far more natural fits for what he offers. So while I think it would be foolish for Miami to jettison the third-year receiver (and obviously they won’t), I do think there are better landing spots out there for Parker to truly thrive in the NFL.
