Former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Samie Parker has agreed to a new two-year contract with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL.
Parker, if you’ll remember, was a fourth-round pick of the Chiefs in 2004. He spent four seasons in Kansas City, appearing in 47 regular season games. He hauled in 110 catches for 1,529 yards and 10 touchdowns. Parker’s best season with the Chiefs was in 2006 when he played in all 16 games, catching 41 passes.
After being cut by the Chiefs, Parker has bounced around the league with the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders. He also won back-to-back UFL championships with the Las Vegas Locomotives.
Parker will join two other former Chiefs on the Argonauts roster.
LB Willie Pile was a member of the same rookie class as Parker, selected in the 7th round, and was his teammate in 2004, appearing in all 16 games while making 36 tackles. Pile has been in Toronto since 2007.
DB Javes Lewis spent training camp with the Chiefs last season, but didn’t make it to the final 53-man roster. He joined the Argonauts this past September.
Are the Toronto Argonauts a Ryan Sims signing away from being called Chiefs North?
