    The fact that he is often sidelined by "minor" injuries, points to the facts that he isn't interested I playing hard. And as such is often sidelined.

    Potential.....tonnes of it. Heart....not so much. Personally, I would trade him for a 3rd, regardless of who is offering. When her is isn't doing ****, and when he does ****, it's woeful. Then get rid of him and draft someone who can help...anywhere...now.

    This dude needs a good QB to be successful, that's why he was breaking out last year with RT. Insert crappy QBs and you get what you get. Players like Landry just need the targets

    Just another 1st round flop in a long line of 1st round Dolphin flops going back to the Shula years.

    QB change is why Parker can’t get separation or catch balls that hit his hands?

    Yeah that one that hit his hands against TB was terrible, but some of these other ones have been terrible QB decisions, let's face it

    Glass Parker will never do anything in Miami...May have minor success elsewhere like Teddy Ginn
    Both are terrified of contact and just want to get paid without ruining their long term health in the process.

    Another 1 catch 5 yard day for Parker. Smh. 5 of the last 9 passes gone his way were intercepted.

    Parker has been a complete disappointment. His play doesn’t match the talent. Re-signing Landry is becoming much easier, with every passing week Parker remains non existent within the offense. Stills IMHO is earning his contract and so will Landry. Parker is expendable as of right now. I’d look to try to trade him in the off season and before the 2017 season ends, sign Stringfellow off the Jets PS to the Dolphins active roster, he’s got potential in this offense.

    Bottomline the DB is saying Parker really needs to hit the gym.

    He's terrible. Plays about 30% of the time and even when he plays he hardly does any thing. Would you expect any thing less from the guy we drafted to be a number 1 wr?

    Trade him. I’d take a 3rd he’s not worth anything more.

    For once I'd like to see the coaches utilize the player to his strengths. If he's not good at getting off the jam, find what he IS good at and use that. Motion him or even have him use slight lateral pre snap movement to get him a more free release.

    Just standing him there motionless as an X receiver is not working.

    Yes Parker has been a bust but so have been our coaches.

    The Dolphins still need an Alpha #1 receiver. However with the lack of cap space and so many other holes on the team it is highly unlikely that they
    will get one anytime soon. Which is why it is nearly crippling when this team misses on so many high draft picks.

    Turd status: confirmed.

    At least I hope this means we resign Landry and let Parker test the open waters of the sewage system

    Parker is under contract. He has no influence on Landry.

    Either bench Parker and Put in Carroo against New England or just use him as a decoy. But stop throwing him passes. Nothing big bad things happens when they do.

    The guy is listed as a starting NFL Wide Reciever in his 3rd year and 2 of those under the same system. He's about 6 3 and 220+ and he can't get off the jam against usually smaller DBs and you actually wrote more beyond that glaring omission?

    He's getting bad QB play. ALL. YEAR. 90% of passes his way are ill-timing and short/behind the route. He can jump out of the stadium and has great range/length, but that doesnt change the fact he is a timing/finesse receiver.

    Theres a reason he looked different last year, as well as the O's ineptness the majority of this season..

    Either way I have a feeling youll be singing a different tune next year..

    We'll see.

    He clearly isn't healthy enough to be on the field. That says a lot about how they feel about Carroo and Grant as receivers more than anything. Parker isn't even a part of the game plan. They're basically using him as a decoy.

    Did see him open quite a bit yesterday. He was streaking down the middle wide open in the endzone on the JT touchdown grab.

    If this forces us to re-sign Landry then it's worth it though.

    Either way I'm not giving up on a 24 year old WR with Parker's size, athleticism, and talent. Next year is the final chance though.

    parker under contract for 1 more season. If we know or suspect we wont resign him, it could allow us more room to pay Landry. I don't think the two are completely unrelated.

    in camp, he was eating on the slants. Miami needs just go back to this vs making him a deep threat WR

    He is actually an UFA in 2020. The last year is an option year.
    Actually Stills would have a greater impact than Parker on Landry negotiations. He is entering his last year before an option for the next two years. Despite all that and while I like Landry his positive play has often been negated by untimely penalties and bad onfield behavior. He is not worth more than 10/mill per year (if even that much).
