REPORT: Broncos Sign WR Samie Parker

Nothing official from the Broncos, but it appears as though the Broncos have signed former Chiefs WR Samie Parker --

Though the AFC West is becoming a division of bigger receivers, the Broncos went against the grain and reached an agreement in principle with 190-pound Samie Parker of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Parker's agent, Jordan Woy, was out of the country Monday, but he was putting the final touches on a contract for Parker. Terms of the deal weren't available, but it was close enough that Parker was making preparations to sign the contract.

The 27-year-old Parker started 22 games over the past two seasons for the Chiefs. He caught 41 passes in 2006 and 24 passes in seven starts last year. Parker was a 2004 fourth-round pick of the Chiefs.

At the owners meetings more than a week ago, Chiefs coach Herman Edwards said teams in the AFC West were moving to taller, bigger and more physical wide receivers because of the physical zone defenses in the division. Last year, the Chiefs used a first-round choice on Dwayne Bowe, who is 6-2, 221 pounds. The Raiders brought in Javon Walker.

Nothing heard along the Darrell Jackson front.  I will be getting Chris from Arrowhead Pride to give us his thoughts on Parker.
