It’s been a rough week for Broncos defensive back Will Parks.
Several days ago, word emerged of a domestic violence charge from late March. Now, he’s scrambling to explain away an ill-advised social media post.
Parks published video of a pair of bad throws from quarterback Paxton Lynch, who’s in an open competition with Trevor Siemian for the starting job in Denver. Parks told reporters on Monday that he intended to highlight his own progress, not to show off the struggles of Lynch.
As to the misdemeanor charge of domestic violence, Parks said the “facts will come out.” If they come out in a way that suggests Parks violated the Personal Conduct Policy, he faces a baseline punishment of a six-game suspension — which the league can and will slide up or down if it see fit, possibly with no explanation at all (e.g., the Josh Brown case).
