The Miami Dolphins are trading former first-round draft pick Devante Parker. According to the NFL Network, Miami is working with Parker for the 2023 third round selection and the New England Patriots for the 2022 fifth round selection.
Parker was ranked 14th overall in the 2015 draft. The former Lewisville wide receiver has made 338 appearances for 4,727 yards and 24 touchdowns in his NFL career, including his only score against the Patriots in the 2015 season finale.
He will now face his former team twice a season, joining AFC East Division rivals. Miami recently acquired extensive receiver Tyreek Hill in a trade with Kansas City Chiefs.
While Bill Belichick may have liked Parker, he was not going to acquire him if it meant parting with any of New England’s premium picks.
