In a move that came as a big surprise to Dolphins fans, wide receiver DeVante Parker has signed a 2-year extension that will keep him in Miami. 

The Dolphins could have let him walk in free agency, or they could have picked up his fifth-year option for $9.5 Mil for one season. This new deal offers a compromise in money and an opportunity for Paker to finally reach the potential of a former fourteenth overall draft choice. His previous four seasons have been hampered by injury issues as well as disappointing results on the field. 

Perhaps Parker and the Dolphins front office agree that the way he was utilized by former head coach Adam Gase was at least partially responsible for his struggles. 

Now, Parker gets a clean slate under Brian Flores and a fresh start.
