Browns agree to terms with Juqua Parker


NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that the Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with defensive end Juqua Parker on a one-year deal with a maximum value of $3 million.

Browns G.M. Tom Heckert knows Parker well from their time together in Philadelphia. Parker is the second defensive end signed by Cleveland during the free agency period, along with new starting right end Frostee Rucker.

Parker turns 34 in May, and doesn’t appear to have a whole lot left. He managed just 1.5 sacks in 12 appearances with Philadelphia last season, failing to register a start.

  1. Despite a down season this past year, I always thought he gave his all. Thanks for your effort Juqua…best of luck in Cleveland.

  2. during the later part of the year when he got healthy he played very well. Definitely getting up there in years but probably still good for another year or so.

  3. Im sorry to see him go.

    He has gotten on in years, but he is a dependable player. He will light Cleveland on fire for 6 or 8 weeks, just like he did every year in Philly. Then he will slow down a bit.

    Hopefully, he will finish out his career well, with a few great years. He was always a respectable person and player. I have nothing bad at all to say about him. I wish him much luck

  4. In 96 the Browns moved to Baltimore. Cleveland fans were pissed. In 2012, if the Browns moved anywhere else (knowing they’d get a fresh start franchise in 2013) I don’t think there would be too many complaints.

  5. Great move, this should help that inept offense score points now. Scratch that he plays defense, I guess this pathetic franchise needs to stop the other team from scoring since the playmaker on offense is the kicker.
    H&H what a joke this team has turned into, can’t wait to watch tem go 3-13 this year.
    Awful, as a Browns fan I go from really caring what happens to complete apathy.

  6. Yeah do no draft Tannehill I would like to see the Steelers draft, develop, and start that man at qb. Bens several hits away from never playing again. Big tree fall hard.

  7. This guy is coming in to be a backup and add depth. He is not going to start. He actually played pretty well for Philly over the years, and should be goof coming in the backup role. I like they way Cleveland is building their team. They aren’t making crazy moves, and want long term success.

  8. I live in Cleveland and this is the most depressing sh*t ever. We won’t give Peyton Hillis 3 million to stay but we give J. Parker 3 million and he isn’t even a starter. Were is my restart for this Franshise. (you are right rockthered no complaints from me if we had to start over from scratch)

  9. @charliebooms

    sorry for your luck man. I wouldnt even know where to begin if I were a true Browns fan. You make me feel bad living in Pittsburgh. Not really though.

  10. Booms…don’t you have a radio show to do? Anyways…like the song goes…

    It’s all the same…only the names have changed.

    Maybe they’ll go DE DE with the first two picks…can’t have enough of those! I heard Wimbley is available again.

  11. I would welcome Wimbley back in heart beat. Never liked the fact that we let him walk in the first place.

  12. man, Philly fan did not feel the same about Dimitri Patterson…but then again – CLE fan cannot believe Eric Wright continues to get re-signed…

  13. JP was a solid if unspectacular player in Philadelphia. He’ll help out if the Browns use him on passing downs and do not ask him to do too much. Not the biggest guy, tended to wear down here from playing too many snaps. He’s a solid professional, but don’t have him on the field when a qb is trying to bait a d-lineman into jumping offsides.

  14. to quote major league:

    “wow, you really knocked that crap outta that one…”

    i get the whole build slow, use the draft, blah blah blah. but these guys have no idea how apathetic the fan base is getting. give us SOMETHING to get excited about…geez

  15. Rome wasn’t built in a day, gentlemen. Give these people a chance. I like the idea of building slow but smart. Then, when we start kicking everyone’s butt, people will be trying figure out how we did it…
