Preston Parker WR NYG 13 Hrs

Coach Tom Coughlin plans to give Parker the first shot at taking over Jerrel Jernigan's split end role, ahead of Corey Washington, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Parker got the nod over the bigger, more dynamic Corey Washington on account of his experience in the league. We wouldn't expect a lot of targets, but the Giants often have three wideouts on the field, so Parker will see some. Keep in mind also that Odell Beckham could be back in the next couple weeks, so even if Parker's promotion is likely to be short-lived.

Preston Parker (foot) is practicing in full this week.

Parker's status was thought to be in doubt after the Bucs re-signed Jordan Shipley, but it turned out to be Sammie Stroughter (foot) who could miss a good chunk of time. Although he's supposedly the Bucs' top slot receiver, Parker is off the radar in PPR leagues.

Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman singled out WR Preston Parker as a player he's excited about this season.

Parker and Sammie Stroughter have been working with the second team during OTAs, most notably ahead of Dezmon Briscoe and Arrelious Benn. Parker is the clear favorite for the team's third receiver/slot job, but will only see a few targets each week behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams.

Bucs signed WR Preston Parker to a one-year, $1 million extension, including $50,000 guaranteed.

An exclusive rights free agent, Parker signed a one-year, $540,000 deal in April, but is now signed through 2013. A $50,000 signing bonus is the only guaranteed part of his contract. Parker is coming off a 40/554/3 campaign, but should in for a reduced role following Tampa's signing of Vincent Jackson. He'll likely focus on returns this season.

Buccaneers re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Preston Parker.

The Bucs' slot receiver a year ago, Parker flirted with the fantasy radar in 2011 due largely to the fact that no other Tampa wideouts could get open. That's going to change with Vincent Jackson in Pewter this year. Parker is still an asset for the Buccaneers, but he won't be a fantasy pick in 2012.
