Whether it’s been due to injury or inconsistent play, DeVante Parker’s NFL career thus far has been a bit of an up-and-down ride, at least from a production standpoint.
That didn’t stop the Dolphins from locking him up with a four-year contract extension worth up to $40 million. Of that money, however, $21.5 million is guaranteed and it includes an $8 million signing bonus.
I’m hearing DeVante’s four-year extension is worth some $40M, lots of gtd money including an $8M signing bonus. DeVante Parker loves the organization, wants to retire a Dolphin. Great work by his agent, James Gould, for getting this done.

Despite Miami’s struggles as a team, Parker is having his best season. He did leave last Sunday’s game against the New York Jets with a concussion – a game the Dolphins lost – but he has practiced this week and seems to be on track to play in Week 14, where Miami will play at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey for the second consecutive week, this time against the New York Giants.

Parker is averaging 16 yards per catch this season on 55 receptions (882 total yards) and six touchdowns thus far this season. After dropping their first seven games, the Dolphins have gone 3-3 to sit at 3-10. After going against the Giants Sunday, they’ll finish up with games against the Cincinnati Bengals and at the New England Patriots.
