The New England Patriots of the NFL, under coach Bill Belichick, reinforced their offense this Saturday with the hiring of receiver DeVante Parker, formerly of the Miami Dolphins.
In exchange for the player, Miami, which recently signed star Tyreek Hill, will receive a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft and a third-round pick in 2023 from the Pats.

Since arriving in the NFL in 2017, Mack has rushed for 2,484 yards and has 20 touchdowns. He also has 57 receptions for 448 yards and two TDs.
In New Orleans, defensive lineman Jalaeel Johnson, 27, left the Houston Texans to sign for the 2022 season with the Saints. Johnson was drafted by Minnesota in 2017; last season he was inactive, totaling just 23 tackles.
