Dolphins receiver DeVante Parker was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Lions. The team and head coach Adam Gase claim he's injured.
According to Parker's agent, Jimmy Gould, not only is his client healthy, the Dolphins head coach is a liar.
Via The Palm Beach Post:
The agent for DeVante Parker is not happy with coach Adam Gase and the Dolphins.
In a statement first released to the Palm Beach Post after Parker was inactive for Sunday’s home loss to the Lions, agent Jimmy Gould said Gase is “not telling the truth” about Parker’s health and suggested Gase’s “incompetence.”
Parker's agent's statement is pretty straightforward.
“I am responding that coach Gase is not telling the truth and his decision was an example of poor management and cost the team the best opportunity to win,” Gould said. “He continues attacking the health of my client and that is not acceptable. Parker is not only healthy but wants to help this team win and the only real question that should be asked is how does coach Gase justify his own incompetence.”
With teams reportedly interested in trading for Parker and the Dolphins reportedly willing to part ways with him, this could be an attempt to help that process along.
