Eagles wide receiver DeVante Parker is retiring.

“I want to see my kids, spend quality time with them,” Parker said.

“I want to be there for them whenever I can.”

Parker finished his NFL career with 369 catches for 5,266 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Asked what he’ll remember most about his NFL career, Parker replied: “The camaraderie. The brotherhood in the locker room on whichever team it was. Everyone always welcomed me with open arms, and I appreciated them for that.”

“I also appreciate the Dolphins for drafting me and giving me the opportunity. I always will have love for the Dolphins and their organization,” he said. “And I want to thank all the teams — the Patriots and the Eagles too. But the Dolphins were the first team, and I really want to thank them.”

Parker’s longtime agent, Jimmy Gould, said it was a privilege to represent him.

“It will continue to be an honor to represent DeVante as he moves forward toward that next chapter of his life,” said Gould, chairman of Management One.
