Parker gave the news to Adam Schefter who made the announcement, citing Parker’s desire to spend more time with his family and kids.

After nine NFL seasons, Eagles WR DeVante Parker has decided to retire, he said Monday night.

As much as he looked forward to his time with the Eagles, Parker decided the time had come to spend more time with his family that includes his four children.
