Jalen Parmele RB CLE 1 year ago

Parmele has been released by the Cardinals, Darren Urban of azcardinals.com reports.

Parmele, who recorded just one carry for zero yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers, became the odd man out of the Cards' depth RB mix following the team's signing of Marion Grice.

Parmele, not Stepfan Taylor, will replace Jonathan Dwyer as Arizona's short-yardage back.

Parmele was out of football last year and has yet to run for an NFL touchdown, so he seems like an odd fit for a short-yardage/goal-line role. Still, the Cardinals will evidently give him the first shot at replacing Dwyer. Perhaps Taylor will get his chance if Parmele proves ineffective.

Parmele signed with the Cardinals on Thursday, the team's official site reports.

After spending time with the Cardinals during training camp, Parmele will now serve behind Andre Ellington (foot), Stepfan Taylor, and Robert Hughes following the deactivation of Jonathan Dwyer. Parmele's ultimate role hasn't been determined, but as the biggest running back (5-11, 225) currently on the roster, he could eventually factor into short-yardage or goal-line looks.

Cardinals signed RB Jalen Parmele, OT Cory Brandon, WR Kevin Ozier and CB Jimmy Legree.

Parmele is the "name" signing. A 2008 sixth-round pick, Parmele carried the ball 40 times for the Jaguars in 2012, but has only 47 career totes. He's a camp body.

Titans agreed to terms with RB Jalen Parmele, formerly of the Jaguars.

He's replacing Jamie Harper, who was waived on Wednesday. Per the Nashville Tennessean's John Glennon, the Titans view Parmele as a better receiver and special teamer than Harper, who was used as a battering ram brute in the running game. Parmele averaged just 3.6 yards on his 40 carries last season, but the depth chart is wide open behind Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene.

The Titans hosted RB Jalen Parmele for a free-agent visit on Friday.

Parmele visited the Seahawks in early April but has otherwise generated no legitimate interest. He's a plodding runner with some special teams value.

Free agent RB Jalen Parmele visited the Seahawks.

As part of the Jaguars' injury-ravaged backfield last year, Parmele recorded 40 carries for 143 yards and no touchdowns. But in reality, he's a borderline NFL player that focuses mostly on lead-blocking and special teams. Parmele can also help out on kick returns in a pinch.

Jaguars RB Jalen Parmele (injured reserve) underwent surgery Thursday to repair his partially torn groin.

There's no word yet on a timetable. If it was sports hernia surgery, Parmele could be running again in a few weeks. A fringe roster type, Parmele is due to reach free agency in 2013.

Jags RB Jalen Parmele (IR, groin) will visit a specialist on Wednesday to determine if he needs surgery.

Parmele earned a game ball for fighting his way back into last week's win despite a pulled groin. He ended up with a partial tear in his muscle. The injury won't help Parmele's chances of earning a 2013 roster spot.
