Much as been said about the battle at wide receiver taking place, especially with Morgan lost for the year and Marques Colston still dealing with a nagging issue.

Not much has been said about third-year pro Preston Parker.

By now you’re probably asking “who?” Parker has bounced around the league and been nothing more than a backup. That may end up being the case in New Orleans, but you would not know it by his excellent performance against the Chiefs.

Right now Parker is looking like a good option to make the final roster, but he’s going to have to keep his foot on the gas.
