Redskins Sign Stetson Tight End Donald Parham

NFL: Washington Redskins at Tennessee Titans Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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 14 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”.

From the Stetson Football Site:

Finished the season with 85 receptions in just nine games for 1,319 yards and 13 touchdowns, earning first team All-PFL honors … Finished his career with school career records for receptions (180), receiving yards (2,591) and receiving touchdowns (20) in addition to the program record for career all-purpose yards (2,591) in 34 games played … Was selected to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on January 26.
