Cardinals released RB Jalen Parmele.

Parmele was signed last week and got one carry in Sunday's win over the 49ers. He turned it into zero yards. The Cardinals signed undrafted rookie DT Bruce Gaston off the Dolphins' practice squad to take Parmele's roster spot.

Jalen Parmele was held without a gain on his lone carry in Arizona's Week 3 win over the 49ers.

Called on to convert a first quarter 3rd-and-1, Parmele got easily stuffed. He wasn't heard from again as Andre Ellington racked up 21 touches. Stepfan Taylor also finished with one carry. Parmele is going to end up scoring a few touchdowns as the Cardinals' apparent short-yardage back, but he's the definition of a desperation fantasy option. You need to do better.

Jalen Parmele will be the Cardinals' short-yardage and goal-line back going forward.

That's what Bruce Arians announced on Friday. Stepfan Taylor will not get goal-line carries in Jonathan Dwyer's absence, and nor will Andre Ellington. A 28-year-old journeyman, Parmele carries little or no fantasy value.

Cardinals signed RB Jalen Parmele.

He's taking the roster spot of Jonathan Dwyer (reserve/NFI list). Parmele slots in at No. 4 on the depth chart, behind Andre Ellington, Stepfan Taylor and Robert Hughes. He'd need a lot to happen to come into fantasy value.
Thu, Sep 18, 2014 03:16:00 PM

Cardinals released DT Isaac Sopoaga, LB Marcus Benard and RB Jalen Parmele.

Parmele has 47 career carries for 187 yards, but has not played a game since 2012. Sopoaga was signed in the aftermath of Darnell Dockett's season-ending knee injury, but lasted only nine days on the roster. Benard had 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 12 games with Arizona last season.
Fri, Aug 29, 2014 09:45:00 PM

Cardinals signed RB Jalen Parmele, OT Cory Brandon, WR Kevin Ozier and CB Jimmy Legree.

Parmele is the "name" signing. A 2008 sixth-round pick, Parmele carried the ball 40 times for the Jaguars in 2012, but has only 47 career totes. He's a camp body.

Titans waived RB Jalen Parmele.

He was a longshot behind Chris Johnson, Shonn Greene, and Jackie Battle.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 02:07:00 PM

Titans agreed to terms with RB Jalen Parmele, formerly of the Jaguars.

He's replacing Jamie Harper, who was waived on Wednesday. Per the Nashville Tennessean's John Glennon, the Titans view Parmele as a better receiver and special teamer than Harper, who was used as a battering ram brute in the running game. Parmele averaged just 3.6 yards on his 40 carries last season, but the depth chart is wide open behind Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene.
Wed, May 8, 2013 01:42:00 PM

The Titans hosted RB Jalen Parmele for a free-agent visit on Friday.

Parmele visited the Seahawks in early April but has otherwise generated no legitimate interest. He's a plodding runner with some special teams value.
Fri, May 3, 2013 04:59:00 PM

Free agent RB Jalen Parmele visited the Seahawks.

As part of the Jaguars' injury-ravaged backfield last year, Parmele recorded 40 carries for 143 yards and no touchdowns. But in reality, he's a borderline NFL player that focuses mostly on lead-blocking and special teams. Parmele can also help out on kick returns in a pinch.

Jaguars RB Jalen Parmele (injured reserve) underwent surgery Thursday to repair his partially torn groin.

There's no word yet on a timetable. If it was sports hernia surgery, Parmele could be running again in a few weeks. A fringe roster type, Parmele is due to reach free agency in 2013.
Thu, Dec 6, 2012 03:27:00 PM

Jags RB Jalen Parmele (IR, groin) will visit a specialist on Wednesday to determine if he needs surgery.

Parmele earned a game ball for fighting his way back into last week's win despite a pulled groin. He ended up with a partial tear in his muscle. The injury won't help Parmele's chances of earning a 2013 roster spot.
Thu, Nov 29, 2012 09:24:00 AM

Jaguars placed RB Jalen Parmele (groin) and CB Will Middleton (concussion) on season-ending injured reserve.

Parmele returned to the game after injuring his groin on the first drive and appears to have done more extensive damage while dragging his leg on a fourth-quarter run. It's a multi-week injury, suggesting surgery will be an option. With Parmele and Maurice Jones-Drew out, Rashad Jennings has another shot at feature-back duties at an improving Buffalo defense in Week 13. Parmele can be discarded in Dynasty leagues, as he won't be guaranteed a roster spot in 2013.
Tue, Nov 27, 2012 04:07:00 PM

Jalen Parmele (groin) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Parmele pulled his groin early in the first quarter against the Titans and spent 1.5 quarters trying to get it loose on the sideline. He briefly returned in the second half, but was running on one leg. Coach Mike Mularkey had high praise for Parmele's effort. "You're talking about a guy dragging his leg, literally, through the hole while he's running over defenders. One of the toughest performances I've seen a player have since I've been in this league." If Parmele can't go in Week 13, Mularkey will have to turn back to Rashad Jennings. Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) still isn't ready.
