Wide receiver DeVante Parker may not play in this Sunday’s game, but he’s set to play in a lot of Dolphins games in the years to come.

According to multiple reports, Parker is finalizing a four-year extension in Miami. NFL Media reports that the deal is worth $40 million with $21.5 million in guaranteed money and an $8 million signing bonus.

The extension comes amid Parker’s best NFL season. He’s caught 55 passes for 882 yards and six touchdowns after signing a one-year deal to return to the Dolphins after signing a new contract with Miami this offseason. That deal had a team option for 2020 that called for Parker to make a $4.4 million salary, but his play this year led to a significant bump on that total.

Parker suffered a concussion in last Sunday’s loss to the Jets. He’s taken part in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Giants.

  1. I thought he wanted out of there or was on the trade block before meaning Miami wasn’t interested in keeping him.

  2. He earned it this year and it’s not a burdensome contract. Seems like Gase had it out for him. Glad he’s putting it together.

  3. Good move for dolphins this kid would have gotten more money on market. He would have been one of the better wide receivers in recent years. Hopefully he is past the injury bug and has a good career I like this kid and liked him in college good move Miami

  4. Gase was the problem with him in Miami. It had nothing to do with Parker. Parker is a stud WR but Gase never gave him a QB and never gave the QB a line so he had time to throw it.
    Gase play calling was so predictable a HS coach could stop his play calling.

  5. Gase Gase Gase my god move on man. We get it you and every dolphin fan can’t stand the guy and maybe in a year I’l feel the same way. But right now he is our coach and as long as darnold plays good he will look good. It’s easy to second guess a call when it goes wrong but if people just did their jobs the call wouldn’t be a bad call. The jets season is blamed on massive injuries to the whole team. It’s now playoff or bust for him next year. I’m confident in joe Douglas as the gm and our issues will be addressed

  6. Parker was a dog the last couple of years whether it be injuries or immaturity. They drafted him with a first round pick so obv they liked him. Maybe it’s just the players who need to act like professionals and take care of their bodies and learn the system even if it’s not a good fit. Gase wasn’t trying to loose games in Miami and he never had a quarterback. Tannehill obv learned something being on the bench because no one ever considered the titans as offensive powerhouse or vrabel as being a top offensive guru.

  7. Tannehill was NOT the problem in Miami. It was Gase. I said all along that Tannehill never got a chance in Miami with no OL and no RB and Gase the supposed play calling genius. Well we all know that was a fraud.
    Tannehill would get the crap beat out of him week in and week out and all he did was get back up and run those lame ass plays that Gase called.
    Look at him now, he is ballin and is gonna get paid this offseason
    I can only hope he comes back to Miami.

  8. Why would the dolphins bring back Tannehill after all this? That would be so stupid at this point ur next quarterback is a young one in the first round making no money. Why would you overpay Ryan that is crazy. He is having a good stretch right now he had 5 or however many years to play and show what he has long term. Any team that signs him will make a mistake long term

  9. He wanted big money rather than a shot at winning a title. These guys just don’t play for the glory anymore, they want the glorified contract.

  10. Gase Gase Gase my god move on man. We get it you and every dolphin fan can’t stand the guy and maybe in a year I’l feel the same way. But right now he is our coach and as long as darnold plays good he will look good.

    I promise you will be echoing this board in time.

  11. He picked up a bunch of garbage time stats and he’s been awful until this year but I don’t recall him being a clown or anything. Rather have these guys like him , or John brown over OBJ.

  12. Gase Gase Gase my god move on man. We get it you and every dolphin fan can’t stand the guy and maybe in a year I’l feel the same way.

    I would choose security for my family (and some extended family) before “glory” every time. Who knows, maybe Chris Grier could strike gold and put together a great team and the Dolphins can become relevant. He’s already made a good decision in choosing the team’s head coach.

  14. Not sure if it will work out but it’s nice to see a team just care about talent and not just get rid of a guy because he wasn’t “their guy”. Too many times, teams and coaches ditch quality players for crappy guys who fit their system. Cater your team to your player’s skills.

  15. Gase renders every offensive weapon he coaches into a sterile version of their former selves.

    Sincerely,
    L. Bell

  16. Leveon bell is not the same guy watch a jets game. He looks slow and dances his running style sucks behind this offensive line. Powell started one game and got more yards than bell has until Thursday night. I love lev but he is not a good fit with a bad line. He looks slow on his route running as well. He should be more involved in the passing game I do agree but as a runner hell no.

  17. DeVante has finally started taking care of himself off the field and its should this season. Early in his career he had a poor diet and stayed up late playing video games, wouldnt get treatment. Now hes eating healthy, getting massages, getting sleep etc

  18. They don’t allow players with concussion to play? But they do allow players with concussion to sign contracts? Both can negativity effect your life for years to come…

    Maybe the concussion is what got him to resign long term with a team that seemingly has no QB and OL…

    Or could ha e just been the weather and less taxes in the state.

  19. He wanted big money rather than a shot at winning a title. These guys just don’t play for the glory anymore, they want the glorified contract.

    Oh stop. Maybe he likes Miami! Maybe his family likes it to! Now that Gase is gone maybe he likes the organization! Oh, and he probably signed a below market deal to stay, so clearly it wasn’t about the money. Do you think before you post things? Or does anything that pops into your brain just immediately go on the internet?

    Best season comes in a contract year, what a shock! How many times have we seen this movie? To give him an additional $5.6mil per year bump for 4yrs and all that guaranteed money for having one decent year, he’d have signed for $6mil/yr and $10-$12mil guaranteed money, another stupid move by the Phins. I’ll bet his sequels won’t be nearly this good for at least 3yrs!

    Below market deal and it wasn’t about the money? He’s a mediocre WR at best and Miami had a 2020 option for $4.4mil and to “BUMP” him to $10mil/yr for 4yrs with a $21mil guarantee is way over the top for his talent level, they could have signed him for $6mil/yr with $10mil guaranteed so yes it was ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, it always is now days!
