    Default Parker to visit Skins

    Parker to visit Skins

    Willie Parker will be the first Steelers free agent to make a visit elsewhere. He is reportedly heading to Washington on Monday to talk to the Redskins about a possible job.

    Washington currently has injury-prone starter Clinton Portis and little else in its backfield.

    The Redskins may be a good fit for Parker, who has had some injury issues in recent seasons himself. Between Parker and Portis, the Redskins may be able to keep one healthy back on the field for every game.

    You know Willie has to like the chances of that turning into a nice pay day.

    Get it up front, Willie.

    They don't seem to keep those FA signings around long enough for the numbers to add up.

    I would love for Willie to do well in Washington. I wanted us to keep him but it's obvious we're not.

    Of course, I wanted to keep Bradshaw suited up also.....(even now).

    It's hard for me to let go of great Steelers.

    and Willie was a great Steeler imo.

    Willie may sign elsewhere but it wouldn't surprise me if he is cut before the regular season or he plays for one more season and that is it. He isn't very good, period.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he ends up back in black and gold.

    Oh Brother! I would like to think our coaching staff realizes Willie brings nothing to the table anymore.

    I think they have sent him a message in a certain way....but every player has a value...their own worth might be different from the FO.

    I'd love to see him for another season in the Steelers plans somewhere.

    Well I'll just reiterate everything I've already said. I love me some Parker, I don't want him to leave, when he does leave I wish nothing but the best for him and to LVG. That is my opinion!
    "He had no teeth, and he was slobbering all over himself. I'm thinking, 'You can have your money back, just get me out of here. Let me go be an accountant." I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there." Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).
