Now that we got our "every down" back in the draft and we picked up Mewelde Moore in the off-season, is there really a need to keep Parker on the roster? I mean, if you look at Moore he is every bit of Parker and then some. Moore is a solid all-around player (RB and ST's) who has proven that he is capable of starting in this league if the right situation came along. I'm of the opinion that this is a diamond in the rough that just hasn't found the right situation. Heck, playing behind Adrian Peterson had to be tough. I think he's just waiting to show his skills.
Parker on the other hand, while has tremendous heart, has proven that he's not an every down back, can't run between the tackles, can't shed tackles, has below average vision, and now has a bum leg (to what extent of long-term damage we have yet to know).
Is it possible that Willie is now expendable and Moore will overtake him?
