This new chance comes in the form of a two year restructure/extension that is worth $10M (and up to $13M with incentives).

DAVIE, Fla. - The Miami Dolphins have reached agreement on a two-year extension with wide receiver DeVante Parker, the team announced Tuesday.

Entering his fifth season in the NFL, Parker gets an opportunity for a fresh start with new Dolphins coach Brian Flores and his staff. Given the Dolphins new commitment to prudent/economical signings, fans should look for low cost veterans, draft picks and/or undrafted free agents. Former head coach Adam Gase had kept Parker on the bench a few times a year ago, despite Parker believing that he was healthy enough to play.

Parker, 26, was selected by the Dolphins with the No. 14 overall pick of the 2015 draft.

Paker's most productive season was 2016.

Last season, Parker was plagued by injuries to his shoulder and finger as he played in only 11 games with just seven starts and one touchdown in 24 catches.

Parker has made 163 career receptions for 2,217 yards and nine touchdowns so far in 54 National Football League games.

Parker will rejoin a young Dolphins receiver corps that features Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant.
