Preston Parker WR NYG 12 Days

Parker had his best game of the season in Sunday's loss at Seattle, catching 7-of-7 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown.

Parker made a number of difficult grabs, and showed good moves after the catch, rebounding form last week's rough performance against Indianapolis. Meanwhile, Corey Washington, who had 48 yards and a touchdown last Monday against the Colts, did not catch a pass against the Seahakws. Expect Parker to continue to see work in the slot, and he'll face a tough 49ers' secondary next week.

Parker caught 1-of-6 targets for seven yards in Monday's loss to the Colts.

Parker had numerous drops in yet another disappointing performance, while Corey Washington caught 4-of-6 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown, albeit with all of that production coming in garbage time. The 6-4 Washington probably isn't a candidate for significant playing time in the slot, but the Giants might consider using him outside in three-wide sets while sliding Reuben Randle or Odell Beckham inside. That said, the Giants seem to view Washington as a project, so Parker's role isn't necessarily in immediate danger, despite his poor play out of the slot.

Parker caught his only target for a six-yard gain in Sunday's 27-0 loss to the Eagles, while fellow wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a torn pattelar tendon.

Parker worked as the No. 3 wide receiver and primary slot man after Cruz suffered what will very likely be a season-ending injury. With Jerel Jernigan (foot) also done for the year, Parker is next up for the No. 3 role, though the Giants could also give Corey Washington a look. Parker, while the less physically gifted of the two receivers, is probably a better fit than Washington in the slot.

Parker caught three passes for 29 yards on five targets in Thursday's 45-14 win over the Redskins.

Working as the No. 3 wide receiver and top return man for both punts and kickoffs, Parker looked pretty good, albeit in a mostly uneventful performance. However, he may have suffered an injury, as Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News reports that Parker left for the locker room shortly before the end of the game. Injured or not, Parker may soon lose the No. 3 wide receiver role to rookie first-round draft pick Odell Beckham (hamstring), who finally returned to practice this week.

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.

Parker made the team's final 53-man roster Saturday.

With Odell Beckham nursing a hamstring injury it's likely Parker will return punts.

Parker, who turns 26 next month, caught 40 passes for 554 yards and three touchdowns for the Bucs in 2011, before falling out of favor with new coach Greg Schiano this past season. Richardson is a defensive end/tackle 'tweener.

Bucs released WR Preston Parker.

Preston Parker WR NYG Jun 30 '78

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.
