David Parry: Released by New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry was released by the Patriots on Friday, Nick Underhill of The Athletic reports.

Parry has seen the field in just four games over the last two years as he's struggled to carve out a role for himself with any team. He's now a free agent after his release.

Patriots' David Parry: Signs with New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots on Wednesday, per the league's official transaction log.

Parry was a starter for the Colts just two seasons ago, but he hasn't been able to make a name for himself in either New Orleans or Minnesota over the past two seasons. He'll now get an offseason to carve out a reserve role with the Patriots in advance of the 2019 campaign.

David Parry: Let go by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry was waived by the Vikings on Saturday.

This will mark the second time Parry has been waived by the Vikings this season. He will likely again revert to their practice squad assuming he clears waivers. He was let go in order to boost depth on the offensive line.

Vikings' David Parry: Signs with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry signed with the Vikings' 53-man roster Tuesday, Craig Peters of Vikings.com reports.

Parry was originally waived by Minnesota on Sept. 19, but was signed back after the team placed rookie Mike Hughes (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday. The former Stanford standout has already played two games with Minnesota this season, accumulating two tackles (one solo) and one sack. Parry could face a tough competition for snaps, as Minnesota has a loaded depth chart at defensive tackle.

David Parry: Cut loose by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry was waived by the Vikings on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Parry was the odd man out on Minnesota's roster after the team signed veteran Tom Johnson earlier this week. Though Parry managed to log a sack on Aaron Rodgers in Week 2, the backup defensive tackle doesn't seem to have shown enough to stick with the team. Considering his experience as a starter, it shouldn't be difficult for Parry to latch on with another club in the future.

Vikings' David Parry: Preparing for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry is preparing for a backup role at defensive tackle, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Showing no signs of the ankle injury that landed him on injured reserve last September, Parry has appeared to be a good fit in Mike Zimmer's defense throughout the spring workout program. The veteran's backup status is no indictment of his talent playing behind Linval Joseph and Sheldon Richardson, though. After all, the veteran was a 16-game starter for the Colts in 2015 and 2016. Minnesota likely got him on a one-year, minimum-salary contract in 2018 because the defensive tackle is rehabbing his market value in the wake of a February 2017 arrest that drew Parry a four-game suspension last season. Parry has since satisfied said ban, and is good to go for the start of the upcoming campaign.

Vikings' David Parry: Reaches deal with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (ankle) agreed to a contract with the Vikings on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While with the Saints last season, Parry landed on injured reserve due to an ankle issue after seeing the field for only three plays in 2017 and was then handed a four-game suspension in December. With the suspension having since concluded, Parry can turn his focus to recovering from the ankle injury and aiming to win a reserve spot along the Minnesota defensive line.

Saints' David Parry: Suspension lapses
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry's (ankle) was officially reinstated Monday after serving his four-game suspension.

Though he was still docked four paychecks stemming from a February arrest in Arizona, Parry didn't miss any actual games due to the suspension, as the Saints had already placed him on season-ending injured reserve due to the ankle issue. Parry, who will become a restricted free agent this offseason, is eligible to play at the start of the 2018 campaign.

Saints' David Parry: Receives four-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (ankle) has received a four-game suspension for his February arrest when he was a member of the Colts, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Parry, who's currently on the Saints' injured reserve list, will have served the entirety of his four-game suspension by the end of the 2017 regular season as Rapoport also notes that Thursday's loss to the Falcons counts as one of the four games. This renders Parry's suspension essentially meaningless, as he's already unable to play in those contests due to his injury.

Saints' David Parry: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Parry suffered the injury in the Saints' Week 3 win over the Panthers, playing just three snaps in his season debut before departing. Since Parry wasn't a key part of the defensive-line rotation and was staring at a multi-week absence, the Saints decided it was optimal to free up a roster spot rather than waiting for the third-year player to heal up.

Saints' David Parry: Helped off field with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry, who suffered a left leg injury Sunday against the Panthers, is questionable to return, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

Parry suffered his injury in the first quarter. Expect an update on the defensive lineman's status to come later in the contest.

Colts' David Parry: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry returned to practice Friday after missing the previous two workouts with a groin injury, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Parry is in the midst of a tough battle with Johnathan Hankins and Al Woods for the starting nose tackle position. It is believed that Grover Stewart has capability as a tackle as well, so Parry will need to stay healthy during the preseason.

Colts' David Parry: Sidelined by unknown ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (undisclosed) has missed the past two practices, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Parry is in the midst of a tough battle with Johnathan Hankins and Al Woods for the starting nose tackle position. It is believed that Grover Stewart has capability as a tackle as well, so unless Parry is able to get healthy and prove himself in a preseason contest, it'll be a stretch to make the team.

Colts' David Parry: Returns from offseason pectoral injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (pectoral) got time as the starting nose tackle in Tuesday's OTA, the team's official web site reports.

Parry strained a pectoral muscle late last season, but it doesn't look like a worry for the 2017 season. However, Parry may face a suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy after he was charged with driving under the influence, criminal damage, auto theft, suspicion of robbery and resisting arrest in an incident in February in Scottsdale, Arizona. Parry pled guilty to one count of attempted unlawful means of transportation and one count of disorderly conduct. He still faces a DUI charge.

Colts' David Parry: Reaches plea deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (pectoral) has reached a plea agreement for a February arrest in which he was charged with one felony and one misdemeanor, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Parry pled guilty to one count of attempted unlawful means of transportation and one count of disorderly conduct, avoiding jail time in the process. Having said that, he's scheduled for sentencing May 31, when the terms of his probation will be determined. In addition to the aforementioned charges, he still faces a DUI charge in Scottsdale, Ari. City Court, potentially augmenting his legal woes. Once the process has played itself out, Parry will likely be subject to a fine and/or suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Colts' David Parry: Charged with multiple felonies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (pectoral) has been charged with two felonies following a Feb. 25 arrest for allegedly stealing a means of transportation and resisting arrest with physical force in Scottsdale, Ariz., the Indianapolis Star reports.

In addition to the felony charges, Parry faces a misdemeanor assault charge due to the incident. A fifth-round pick in the 2015 draft, he's started all 32 contests over the last two seasons, notching four sacks among 78 tackles (49 solo).

Colts' David Parry: Arrested in Scottsdale, AZ
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colts' David Parry: Four tackles and sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry had four tackles, a sack, a QB hit and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's win at Green Bay.

Parry was productive in limited time as he played 33 of 69 snaps on defense. It was his first sack of the season -- the nose tackle won't get to the quarterback frequently as he's more of a run stuffer.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
