Roscoe Parrish is on the trade block again

Drafted by the Mike Mularkey Bills in 2005, wide receiver Roscoe Parrish has had four different offensive coordinators during his tenure in Buffalo.

And none of them have known exactly what to do with him.

So with Parrish mostly riding the pine these days, the Bills have decided to see what they can get for him.

A league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio that Parrish is on the trade block and he could be dealt as soon as the week.

Possible destinations include the Chiefs, Jaguars, and Redskins. 

The Bills are rather short on the offensive line, but it seems more likely that Buffalo would be able to get a late-round draft pick in exchange for Parrish, who is under contract through 2011.

Parrish has no catches on the season as a wide receiver.  He has one punt return for five yards.

    My first question: Who the hell is Roscoe Parrish ?
    My second question: See question #1.
    He currently holds the NFL record for average yards per punt return. Very under rated special teams guy who wants to play Offense but can’t…
    I really hope the Bills deal him but he is the best punt returner in the leauge.

    why am i still having to log in multiple times a day?
    The fact that the Bills can’t figure out what to do with Roscoe is yet another reason they finish 8-8 year after year. I like Jauron as a DC, but the lack of creativity during his tenure as a HC is inexcusable. To those people who doubt Parrish’s ability to produce because of his size, do I really need to start naming names of diminutive players who have produced at the NFL level? The best QB in the league is barely 6′ tall, how about Sproles at 5’7″ or 5’9″ Welker.

    Roscoe is great return guy and a guy that can make some plays in the open field from the slot. Too many WRs in Buffalo with TO, Josh Reed and Lee Evans for Parrish to make an impact.

  4. Speed kills and he has a ton of it. I really think that he can be a serious weapon if a team uses him right.

  5. Every time I hear about Roscoe Parrish I think of Marlin Briscoe, who also played for the Bills.
    Roscoe, Briscoe…
    Hey, I might name my next dog Roscoe Briscoe. It sort of rolls off the tongue.

  6. How about Atlanta as a destination? With Mularkey as the OC there now he might want to finish what he started when he drafted Roscoe. Also with Douglas going down and Norwood’s status up in the air, Parrish’s value as a return man could help.

  7. Possible destination? Anywhere willing to trade O-liners. The Bills are one serious injury from Roscoe playing Tackle.

  8. “Wasn’t he the deputy on the Dukes of Hazard tv show ?”
    Nah, he was the Sheriff. You are thinking of Curtis Enis.

  9. News flash!!!! Bobby Wade was horrendous at returning punts on Sunday. Roscoe Parrish the Chiefs will gladly take your services (best punt return average in the nfl) for a pick in the late rounds. Our special teams suck!

    “Wasn’t he the deputy on the Dukes of Hazard tv show ?”
    Nah, you’re thinking of Roscoe P Coltrane. He was the sheriff and Boss Hoggs right hand man.
    I can see your confusion however. Many people forget that Roscoe P Coltrane returned punts at Alabama in 1963-64. The same years that Forrest Gump played there.

  11. I would argue that Atlanta would be a good destination. Mularkey is the OC and they lost Harry Douglass this year. Parrish is a very similar player.

  12. Denver needs a lot more than a punt returner… biggest BS 2 and 0 record ever put on the books. They could finish 2-14 easily…

  13. In the Rock Pile we go nuts when Roscoe gets his hands on the ball; in my opinion the most exciting player on the team. Something has to be said about his inability to play a more prominent role in the offense, but as a special teamer he is outstanding.

  14. I heard the colts are working on a one year deal with marvin harrison to trade to buffalo for parish and josh reed and the bills also getting a 3rd round pick
