The NFL on Fox’s Instagram account asked, “What’s more difficult?” A. Capture while guarded by Stephon Gilmore “or” B. Break a pass while keeping Michael Thomas. “
Parker, who had a breakout season for the Miami Dolphins last season, responded “A” in the post comments, which didn’t suit the New Orleans Saints star catcher.
Thomas replied, “For you, yes. Go get some numbers. Then you can speak. I gave you a ride and you’ve been in the league longer than me, first round. “
Parker replied, “Do you have a hard feeling there, brotha?”
Thomas continued the spitting, writing, “In other words, you are weak. They don’t even put your name in the same sentence as me. Remember this! “And” You’re still not going to do anything. It took you six years and 17 weeks to have a good game. GTFOH. Blame your parents, not any QB. “
“Stop crying the bra,” Parker said to Thomas, including several laughing emojis.
After a few more taps from each receiver, Thomas posted the last few words, telling Parker, “You can’t even get a seat at the table. “
Thomas was drafted in the second round of the 2016 draft and set records for most receptions in one season (149 last year) and most receptions in a player’s first four seasons (470) . He has led the NFL in receptions for the past two seasons and receiving yards (1,725) last year.
Parker was drafted 14th overall by the Dolphins in 2015, but did not break out until last season, when he had 72 receptions for 1,202 yards. While Parker has had multi-quarter passes over his career, Thomas has been able to play with future Hall of Famer Drew Brees as a quarterback.
Gilmore of the New England Patriots was defensive player of the year in 2019 and eliminated Parker when they first met last season. However, Parker bounced back in week 17, catching eight passes for 137 yards in Miami’s surprise 27-24 victory that cost the Patriots goodbye.
