J'Vonne Parker

Today a third Defensive Tackle was signed by the Broncos coaching staff as J’Vonne Parker joined the Broncos. As per team policy, the terms of the deal were not disclosed to the public.

Parker (6-foot-4, 325 pounds) is a fifth-year defensive tackle who joins the Broncos after seeing time on the rosters of Carolina (2008), Atlanta (2008), Baltimore (2007-08), Dallas (2006) and Cleveland (2005-06). He entered the NFL with the Browns in 2005 as a college free agent from Rutgers University.

Parker in his career has played in 11 regular season games and had a career high in 2006 of 6 with the Browns. He has a total of six tackles (4 solo) and one fumble recovery in his career. In 2008, Parker saw his only game action in the Panthers’ regular-season finale at New Orleans on Dec. 28.

As a rookie with Cleveland in 2005, Parker began the season on the club’s practice squad before appearing in its final four games. Parker finished his collegiate career at Rutgers after playing two seasons at Howard University. He saw time in 11 games as a senior for the Scarlet Knights.

This is the definition of quantity over quality free agents. While I have nothing against Parker he is just not a blockbuster signing. But let’s face it, at this point there are not many left on the market. But you never know, maybe Parker will shock us and become a star. It is doubtful but this is the reason we bring these players in.

In other news, the Broncos signed former Bronco Kenny Peterson for another year.
