NFL Free Agency: Eagles DeVante Parker Announces Retirement

NFL Free Agency: Eagles DeVante Parker Announces Retirement Gregory Fisher, USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles are saying goodbye to another veteran.

On Monday, following the team’s first OTAs, it was announced that WR DeVante Parker would be retiring.

Signed early in the free agency process, Parker appeared to be the first real competitor for the WR3 role this season.

Instead, he’s ascended to the upper echelons of Eagles history with players like Myles Jack, who also signed with the team then retired before the season last year. That’s a tier below the Frank Gore level, where he didn’t event get to the contract signing.

It now appears that veterans Parris Campbell and Britain Covey would have the in-route to the key role in the offense with draft pick Ainias Smith  also likely to get a solid shot to take over the position.
