The Chiefs continued to reshaping of their defense, cutting another guy they once gave big money to.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Chiefs are getting rid of safety Ron Parker.

Parker signed a five-year, $25 million deal in 2015, and losing him creates $5 million in cap room.

Parker’s been a productive player for the Chiefs, but they’ve already traded cornerback Marcus Peters and cut linebacker Derrick Johnson.

  1. Parker is soft, not a tackling safety and pretty weak in coverage too. Everyone looks better with Eric Berry in the backfield, but the Chiefs DB’s were exposed to who they really are last year.

    I like the move.

  2. I like him as a player, I think he’s versatile enough to play both safety and nickel corner. I’m a Bucs fan so I really hope they give him a look since safety is a big need.

  3. If you are going to talk about him at least get his name right. That’s Ron “Burnt Toast” Parker.

  4. I remember when he got the big contract years ago. I was steamed about that much money for Ron stinkin Parker. But you know what, he was really solid and reliable for about 3 years. He and Berry did their thing on the back end and they both could come up and play nickel if needed. Parker wasn’t the bust people might think. His play has slipped and he isn’t worth the back end money of a big contract. Time to move on, but in the end not such a ludicrous signing.
