Denver Broncos: Tight end position preview and season outlook
6’4″ 265 pounds (26 years old)
Brian Parker is another very athletic player the Broncos picked up on their practice squad in mid-November last year.
He was initially signed out of Albany as an undrafted free agent by the San Diego Chargers. He spent camp and the preseason with them before being waived and quickly claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs kept Parker on their roster for the entire 2015 season but decided to waive him prior to the start of the 2016 season. He caught one pass for six yards in 2015.
Parker spent the 2016 season and part of 2017 on and off of the New York Jets’ roster and injured reserve.
He was cut by the Jets in August last season and ended up signing onto the Broncos’ practice squad on November 15th.
Parker’s size and athleticism are rare for his position but like LaCosse, it’s going to take a whale of a camp from him to crack the final roster.
