View Full Version : Broncos close to signing Samie Parker

The Broncos are reportedly close to signing free agent WR Samie Parker and are in "deep discussions" with Darrell Jackson.


The deal between Parker and Denver could be done as soon as today. The Broncos are the only team known to show interest in Jackson since he was released. Mike Shanahan runs a variation of the West Coast offense Jackson has excelled in, but it is more run heavy than Mike Holmgren's version.

This makes me nervous. I'm not a huge Parker fan, but he is what he is a nice #3 WR, something we don't currently have on this team. This is one guy we should have resigned if the money was right.

Is this the second coming of Joe Horn? Probably not, but I do think its going to bite us in the ass.

I like this pick up for the donks, in the two games we play against them - we should be able to get at least one INT from a pass bouncing off his hands/shoulder pads...

Actually, he wasn't stone hands in 2007. Maybe it was due to it being a contract year, but he showed a lot of improvement on the field.

Enh, who knows what will happen...

All I do know is that if they do sign him, it will be cheap and there would be nothing but upside. They wouldn't be breaking the bank or anything like that with Parker.

I'd like DJax as a veteran presence - the guy still has something left. Brandon Marshall (and all of his issues) is the lead dog... Stokely is a nice #3 type of option. They signed Colbert, which like Parker, is nothing but upside. So, competition is good and maybe one of these guys turns into something. The good thing is that neither is expected to be more than a #2-3 option... and that fits what they've done (which isn't much) so far in their careers.

Sign FA backups and draft your own starting WRs. It is a good plan. KC is going the same route it appears.

parker does not have 'upside'. he's a scrub. he can't get open, he doesn't ahve good hands... what does he have to offer? it's not like he has shown potential. he's cheap and that's all. this is a spare part, a guy who will be out of the league in a couple years having done nothing

I've been one of the most vocal Parker detractors on the internet. I've trashed that guy over and over and over.

But if you couldn't see improvement in his play in 2007, you weren't watching the same games I saw.

I'd rather not see him go to a division rival. I'm not suggesting he'll be Rod Smith but he's perfectly capable of hurting the Chiefs.

Now that he has a QB that can deliver the ball anywhere we'll see if Parker has anything. He looks to be a #4 WR that will play in situations or injury fill.

Joe Horn - 4 years with Chiefs

7 TDs

Sammie Parker - 4 years with Chiefs
110 Receptions
1529 Yards

Now Horn did breakout a bit his last year here while Parker did not. Horn had 586 yards and 6td in his last year as a Chief.

There's no point in KC keeping him, but he's the type of player that could develop into a solid #3 receiver in a new city with different coaching. It's a low risk/medium reward move for Denver.

Trent Green couldn't deliver the ball when he was here? I think when he says "deliver the ball anywhere" he really means anywhere. Like, on the field, off the field, into the front row, out of the stadium. You never know where a Donko pass might go, and that kind of unanticipatable wildness will help to cover up Parker's problems.

Hoover
04-14-2008, 10:58 AM
No I don't.

But I think that the Chiefs have needs at the WR position that he could fill. We basically have 2 WRs and thats it, Bowe and Darling. Parker is young and has showed improvement so I don't understand why we want to kick his ass to the curb when we will have to go out and roll the dice on some other WR. I fine with letting him go if we had a #3 WR on this team, sadly we don't.

He's probably a whiney bitch or something. Either way, it fits Herm's model of rubbing all the Vermiel funk off of this team...with few exceptions, DV's fingerprints are all but wiped clean...

Well, we played Horn like a number 3 or number 4 WR, not a 3 year starter, so that is completely misleading.

Parker gets better, then gets worse, then gets better, then falls off again, then get injured, blah, blah, blah. The words consistently inconsistent come to mind.

KC hasn't been a pass oriented team though in the last three seasons... 17 / 18 / 17 team passing TDs, right? Is it a fault of the receivers... QBs... coaching... run oriented?

Take your pick. QB has been an issue... Gonzo is the lead guy with Kennison being the other focus. I don't know if Parker is worth the time of day or not, but it's not like KC has been a place for receivers to flourish.

There will certainly be no shortage of inappropriate and exaggerated celebrations on 3 yard completions to a 4(?) year veteran that still jumps to catch passes thrown right between his numbers.

I for one am more than happy to see him going to a division rival.

I'm all for stringing 20 of those together for a 60 yard drive... he'd be damn tired and they may settle for a FG that the replacement for Elam may miss.... but seriously, that would set a record and he'd rule in a PPR fantasy league.

It isn't about TD's, there have been enough passes go around that if he was any good his stats would be better. Especially with the injuries we had last year.

Who knows... a change of scenery helps players. No idea if he'll do anything if he signs in Denver, but it should be a cheap contract... so, if he signs... no big deal. If he fails - it was expected and they lost nothing. If he does well, it's great.

This last year was clearly his best EFFORT as a true WR, when he got the chance. Taking into consideration, in 2007, KC's QB had almost a full nano second to get the ball out to a WR, the picture gets clearer.

He would actually look the ball all the way in, make sure of the catch, then proceed on the yards after the catch, if there was any.
His first years, he would run before he caught the ball, continually trying to make the huge play and blowing the routine ones in the process.

His first two years Parker was a threat with his speed downfield so I can see why Denver wants a look see. As a possession receiver Parker is hopeless and I'm glad he is gone.
