According to Stephen Fastenau of The Beaufort Gazette, Parker will return to the Chiefs after emerging as a great tackling CB who replaced departed Pro Bowl CB Brandon Flowers and ended up starting 15 games in 2014. Parker’s agent Justin Turner told Perez Taylor the terms of the deal.

Parker, who had previously played for three other teams prior to joining the Chiefs in 2013, got his first chance to play in the NFL when he was signed by newly-hired Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. After a 2013 season mostly as a backup he was finally given his chance to start and rewarded Reid with just under 100 tackles, 12 passes defended, a sack and an interception.
The Chiefs would go on to finished with a 9-7 record, their second consecutive winning season, and were the No. 2 scoring defense in the NFL, allowing 281 total points – the fewest allowed since 1997 – and were also the No. 7 defense in yards allowed – their best defensive ranking since 1995.
