Dolphins coach Adam Gase doesn’t expect Miami to trade DeVante Parker
DeVante Parker has been one of the most disappointing players of the 2018 NFL season after major expectations were set for him in the offseason. After a promising season in 2017 with the Miami Dolphins, Parker has only played in three games. In his first two games of the year, Parker caught just two passes for 40 yards.
Last week against the Houston Texans, Parker came alive. He caught six passes for 134 yards. Parker was unable to get in the end zone, but the Dolphins were very excited to see him put up big numbers.
Throughout the first eight weeks of the season, Parker has been mentioned in trade rumors. Despite all of the rumors, it appears that he might end up sticking with the Dolphins this season.
According to a report from Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, head coach Adam Gase does not see Parker being traded ahead of tomorrow’s trade deadline.
“It’s highly unlikely that something like that would happen.”
At 25 years old, there is no denying how much talent Parker possesses. He has the potential to become a true No. 1 wide receiver for the Dolphins. That is something that they desperately need with Jarvis Landry leaving for the Cleveland Browns during the offseason.
Gase and the Dolphins are 4-4 so far this season. They firmly believe that they can compete for a spot in the AFC playoff picture, but will need Parker to continue stepping up in order to reach that goal.
It will be interesting to see what the Dolphins decide to do ahead of the deadline. There are plenty of teams that could have interest in acquiring Parker, but for now, it appears that they are happy to keep him.
