So we cut Jamie Harper today and replaced him with former Jaguars back-up RB Jalen Parmele, even swap right? Not so quick. I went back and watched Jalen Parmele in action. Its seems the reason he's never caught on til recently is due to the players ahead of him on the depth chart. In 2008 he was a late round pick by the Dolphins, and back then they had Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown, so it's understandable to see why he saw no action. Then in 2009 he's a Raven, but also playing behind superior talent in Ray Rice and Willis McGahee. Fast forward to 2012, Parmele finally catches a break when Rashad Jennings struggles mightily to fill Maurice Jones-Drew's shoes. Parmele comes in and plays really well for about 2 weeks, then he sees the Titans and within 15 minutes is put on IR. Sorry bout that bud. Anyways, here is what I thought of Parmele during that 2 week stretch last year. He's a tough runner, likes to keep it simple with north & south running, but can elude defenders with subtle moves. He also has good receiving skills, and gets lined up everywhere from RB & FB to H-Back. But he can't block to save his life. Here you can see Parmele lined up at RB he gets blocked into the passer and here he is lined up at H-Back again, not the best outcome for him All in all it was a solid signing, can't hate it, but can't love it either. Still better than having Jamie Harper around I suppose.
