After the Chargers waived tight end Brian Parker, general manager John Dorsey claimed him on September 6. 

"Parker, we've all along liked him," general manager John Dorsey said Monday. "Ever since the college draft came along, we've really liked him. We've monitored him all during the preseason. He's shown exactly what we thought he would be."

Dorsey highlighted what the Chiefs personnel staff liked Parker.

"He's a really good run-blocker, he's got speed to go down the field, he's got the hands to catch, but he can contribute on special teams – and I see a good ceiling for him as well."
