The Miami Dolphins aren't giving up on former 1st round pick DeVante Parker just yet.

Parker signed a contract extension to remain with the team through the 2020 season.

Parker, 26, was selected by the Dolphins with the No. 14 overall pick of the 2015 draft.

Last season, he played 11 games with 24 catches and 309 yards.

Parker had widely been considered a disappointment for the start of his career in Miami, especially given his potential and high draft status.

Last season Gould publicly questioned the competence of coach Adam Gase and complained about how Parker was used.

But it's a new era in Miami under head coach Brian Flores and general manager Chris Grier.

Parker's best season came in 2016 when he finished second on the Dolphins with 744 receiving yards on 56 catches and four touchdowns.

Parker has made 163 career receptions for 2,217 yards and nine touchdowns so far in 54 National Football League games. 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.

It also sets him up with a chance to cash in on a much more lucrative contract in two years.
