Many prognosticated a change of scenery was coming the way of receiver DeVante Parker.

The new deal wipes away the fifth-year option worth $9.4 million that would have been guaranteed if Parker was still on the roster Wednesday and replaces it with a two-year deal with lower base salaries.

Parker never reached the potential he had as the team's top pick four years ago, but with a new administration in Miami, he'll have every opportunity to prove himself anew. He was limited to just 11 games and seven starts last season after being plagued by injuries to his shoulder and finger, finishing with 24 catches for one touchdown.

Parker, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound receiver, has the ability to take over games.

It appeared that Parker was on the outs with former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and his coaching staff. It was no secret that Parker and his agent didn't see eye-to-eye with how Gase handled his time in Miami; especially towards the end of past year. They want to see if Parker, 26, can reignite his career. This move doesn't mean that the Dolphins are done looking for "depth" at the position considering Parker's injury history and that both Grant and Wilson are recovering from major injuries that put them on Injured Reserve to end 2018.
