by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saints' Brian Parker: Heading to Big Easy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker signed a contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Parker played 13 games with the Broncos last season and caught five of 10 targets for 33 yards. The 27-year-old provides some additional depth at tight end while Jared Cook nurses an ankle injury.

Broncos' Brian Parker: Works his way up depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker concluded 2018 with five catches and 33 yards off 10 targets.

Parker started the season on the practice squad and moved up following the season-ending ACL injury to Jake Butt. He didn't get too involved in the offense until Jeff Heuerman (ribs) went down for the year in Week 12. As a No. 2 tight end, Parker didn't show too much promise as an option in the passing game. Even if Heuerman departs in the offseason, the competition brought on by Butt, Matt LaCosse and Troy Fumagalli alone will make it difficult for Parker to make the squad.

Broncos' Brian Parker: Pair of grabs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker brought in two of his three targets for 10 yards in the Broncos' 27-14 loss to the Raiders on Monday.

With Matt LaCosse (foot) inactive, Parker was the next man up in a depleted tight end corps. The 26-year-old now has back-to-back two-catch outings and five receptions overall in the last three games, but he's totaled just 33 yards over that stretch. Nevertheless, Parker will find himself in the primary tight end role once again in the Week 17 finale versus the Chargers if LaCosse is unable to suit up.

Broncos' Brian Parker: Figures to see more targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker's teammate Jeff Heuerman (ribs/lung) is out for the year, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports. This could move Parker up the depth chart.

Parker was targeted for the first time since Week 6 during Sunday's win over the Steelers. Heuerman exited late, and now Parker figures to slot into the No. 2 role behind Matt LaCosse. Parker has just one career reception, so don't expect too much, but he does figure to get some opportunities Sunday against the Bengals 31st-ranked pass defense.

Broncos' Brian Parker: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

The Albany product has steadily worked his way up the ladder having just joined the practice squad at the beginning of September. Parker doesn't figure to have any significant role on the offensive side of the ball, but the tight end could be of service on special teams should he continue to impress the coaching staff.

Brian Parker: Joins Broncos practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker signed a contract to join the Broncos' practice squad, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Parker, who's only appeared in nine games since going undrafted out of Albany in 2015, will continue his development in Denver for the time being.

Broncos' Brian Parker: Signs with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos signed Parker to a reserve/future contract Monday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

A third-year tight end out of Albany, Parker hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2015, when he made nine appearances with the Chiefs. He'll get the opportunity to take part in the Broncos' offseason program and make his case for a roster spot in training camp next summer.

Jets' Brian Parker: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker (undisclosed) was placed on IR on Sunday.

Given the IR designation, it seems as if Parker's season could be in danger of landing before takeoff. Parker appeared in nine games with the Chiefs in 2015.

Jets' Brian Parker: Lands with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets signed Parker on Thursday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Undrafted in 2015, Parker subsequently made nine appearances with the Chiefs during that season, corralling one of two targets for six yards. The tight end didn't make the cut last preseason, though, only to spend two days with the Jets before he was waived/injured just before the start of the regular season. After a year out of football, he'll have a chance to land a roster spot in a Jets positional group bereft of much talent.

Brian Parker: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker was waived by the Jets on Tuesday after failing his physical, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Parker was claimed by the Jets on Sunday after the team opted to part ways with tight end Jace Amaro. The 24-year-old wasn't expected to be a major contributor for the Jets this season, but the team was prepared to use him on special teams when they picked up his contract.

Jets' Brian Parker: Claimed by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Sunday, Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The Jets became active in the market for tight ends after the decided to part ways with former second round pick Jace Amaro after just two seasons. While Parker is unlikely to play out of the gate, the 24-year-old could see time as the season progresses.

Brian Parker: Misses final cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker was released by the Chiefs on Saturday, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

Parker was a candidate for the 53-man team, even as a fourth string tight end, but he ended up as one of the final cuts. He'll be eligible for the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Chiefs' Brian Parker: On border for 53-man roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

ESPN's Adam Teicher thinks Parker is a candidate to make the team's 53-man roster but it could be difficult for the Chiefs to keep him on as a fourth-string tight end.

Parker nabbed his only target for 13 yards in Thursday's preseason finale but remains well behind the trio of tight ends (Travis Kelce, Demetrius Harris and Ross Travis) for a roster spot. If the second-year tight end doesn't make it, he could still be a candidate for the practice squad.

Chiefs' Brian Parker: Could see increase in workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker could see an extended run Sunday against the Broncos.

Parker saw his first game action with the Chiefs two weeks ago against the Lions, making key blocks on a play that led to a 10-yard touchdown run for De'Anthony Thomas. However, he didn't make have any grabs in the contest, and probably won't do enough even in his expanded role to be worth consideration in fantasy leagues.
