FOX Sports Kansas City expects the Chiefs to start Ron Parker opposite Marcus Cooper this season.
Parker was Kansas City's starting left corner during OTAs, with Sean Smith demoted to the second team. Smith was recently arrested for DUI and is coming off a down year, grading out negatively in coverage by Pro Football Focus. At 6'0/206, Parker will likely be limited to outside corner in Bob Sutton's press-man scheme. Parker had two interceptions and a forced fumble despite playing under 100 snaps last season. The Chiefs' secondary is a 2014 concern. Jun 21 - 5:47 PM

Seahawks signed CBs Ron Parker and DeShawn Shead.

Parker was on the Panthers' practice squad, while Shead was on Seattle's. The moves were made after the announcement that starting CB Brandon Browner had dropped his appeal of his four-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy. Walter Thurmond III will start in Browner's place. With fellow starter Richard Sherman in danger of being suspended for Week 15, it's possible Parker and Shead could both eventually be in for snaps on defense. For now, they should be limited to special teams.

Panthers waived CB Ron Parker.

Signed off the practice squad just two days ago, Parker was active for Sunday's win, notching one tackle. He'll presumably be stashed back on the practice squad provided he clears waivers.

Panthers signed CB Ron Parker from their practice squad.

This is a depth move with Chris Gamble listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. The Panthers will likely turn to Josh Thomas in place of Gamble with Captain Munnerlyn remaining the nickel back. Thomas is in his second year and has played just five defensive snaps in his career.

Seahawks placed CB Ron Parker (undisclosed) on injured reserve, ending his season.

A Google search turns up no news on Parker's injury, only a picture of him celebrating a punt-block touchdown with Michael Robinson. The special teamer's injury presumably occurred later in Monday night's game.

Seahawks claimed CB Ron Parker off waivers from the Raiders.

The 24-year-old Parker spent training camp in Seattle before surfacing on Oakland's practice squad, and later the active roster. Parker played mostly safety at Newberry College, but has been a cornerback so far in the pros.

Raiders waived CB Ron Parker.

Parker made zero tackles in three games this season. He's likely to end up back on the practice squad as long as he clears waivers.

Raiders promoted CB Ron Parker from the practice squad.

A pretty good indication FS Michael Huff (concussion) will be inactive for Week 4. An undrafted free agent out of Newberry College, Parker will be making his NFL debut if he's active on Sunday.
