Parker had just 18 catches for 244 yards and three touchdowns, in an injury filled year. His season was cut short by eight games due to a shoulder injury. In addition to his wide receiver duties, Parker returned punts. He averaged 9.0 yards per return on 23 punts and had several big gains called back on penalties.
"He's the kind of player that we can count on," said Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer. "He meets the criteria of the guys that we're looking for -- hard-working, purposeful, willingness to work extra. Those are the players we want on our team. Certainly, when you are able to have one like Eric, I think that you need to reward them. That's what we've done."
Parker will be counted upon heavily this year and has a real shot at opening the season as one of the starting receivers. This deal intensifies that sentiment.
