Parker worked out for the Saints on Monday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Parker was released by the Giants after a drop-riddled first two games of this season, but is still an option for teams to consider following his 36-catch campaign last year. With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if Parker's workout results in an offer from the Saints.
Wide receiver Preston Parker was released by the Giants on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of FS1 reports. Parker had trouble hanging onto the football over the season's first two games, so the Giants decided to take him off the roster in order to open up a spot for defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis. Parker totaled 76 receptions for the Giants over the last two seasons, so he figures to draw interest from teams in need of receiving help.
The Giants got a slew of offensive contributions in their 37-27 win at St. Louis. Among them, tight end Larry Donnell caught four of five targets for 42 yards, wideout Preston Parker caught all three of his targets for 32 yards and tight end Daniel Fells hauled in two passes for 20 yards. Backup running back Orleans Darkwa ran four times for 21 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown, and secured both his targets for 17 yards. They'll all play the Eagles in Week 17.
The Giants released their final Week 14 injury report and listed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back), Jameel McClain (knee), Preston Parker (knee) and Cullen Jenkins (calf) as probable for Sunday's game against the Titans. The Giants also listed Mark Herzlich (concussion) as questionable, with James Brewer (concussion) and Jacquian Williams (concussion) being listed as out.
Giants wide receiver Preston Parker was a limited participant in Thursday's practice with a knee injury. Parker, who has 294 yards and two touchdowns, is questionable for Week 14 against the Titans.
