The Redskins announced the signing of Stetson record setting tight end Donald Parham today. Parham was a recent participant at the Skins mini-camp, and did enough to impress the coaches to earn himself a contract.
#Redskins announce the signing of TE Donald Parham, who I believe was out at mini-camp this week. Made a play or two if he was the name-less jersey wearing TE I’m thinking of.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) June 7, 2019
Parham is a 6’8” 243 pound athletic freak at TE who was invited to the Senior Bowl. He moves like a wide receiver, but has incredible length and the frame to play well over 250 pounds. Despite 36 1⁄4 inch arms, he put up 17 reps of 225 at his Pro Day. His 39 inch vertical is insane for a guy who is 6’8”.
Donald Parham just ran an unofficial 4.65 40 at 6-8. Great time for him. Someone who I would like to see in Green Bay with the addition of another early TE in the first three rounds. https://t.co/g0lG3OLAph— Brooks (@EBrooksUncut) March 29, 2019
