WR DeVante Parker gets another chance with Dolphins | AP sports

The contract is reportedly for $13 million over the two years.

Big and fast with prototypical size at 6-foot-3, 216 pounds, Parker was a first-round draft pick for the Dolphins in 2015, who took him 14th overall. But his agent, Jimmy Gould, said Parker loves Miami, wasn't interested in testing the market, and is eager for a chance to blossom under new Dolphins coach Brian Flores.

DeVante Parker is sticking with the Dolphins. "It's like a new start for him".

Last season Parker had a public dispute with then-head coach Adam Gase, which led to Gase sitting Parker for most of the season. It was no secret that Parker and his agent didn't see eye-to-eye with how Gase handled his time in Miami; especially towards the end of past year.

Parker has flashed potential at times but has been mostly inconsistent and injured since the Dolphins drafted him in the first round of the 2016 National Football League draft. Prior to the incident, Parker had still yet to live up to his first-round potential, only recording 1,900 yards and eight touchdowns through 24 games over the course of three seasons. After missing the playoffs for the 15th time in 17 years, they have begun a reboot and youth movement under Flores and acknowledge it may take several seasons to build a victor.

Miami also declined to overpay to keep last year's leading rusher and receiver.
