    He was signed by the Lions, but I don't see him on their roster any longer.

    I got an email tip from a reader that Parson has signed with the Texans, though it's not official yet. Here's the link to my quick update on it - but there's no source online yet.

    So uh... hopefully this turns out to be true or I'm going to look kind of stupid. :D

    Nah. I don't think it would make you look any more stoopid than you already do.

    Thanks for the info. :)

    I don't know a lot about him, but a guy who did a couple of guest mock drafts for my site was OVER THE MOON about him. He's apparently one of the best press corners in the country, if not the best. No flashy stats, but has a nose for the ball and was a playmaker.

    Of course, there's a reason he didn't get drafted, but he's not the typical "camp body" type of UFA. He's a guy who could definitely make a team... though I'm real curious to find out what happened with him in Detroit.

    I really hope you are right. This guy really sounds like an intriguing prospect. Why did he drop so much? Just because he was in a non-BCS conference?!?

    not sure, I did all kinds of searches but don't see where lions signed him or on their roster


    nothing on search on www.kffl.com

    watching the video, i am like... who is turning their head around looking for the ball? but also thinking.. He has never gone up against AJ (looking at the drills) and he was forcing the receiver to the sideline

    1/2 full , 1/2 empty LOL

    back in may

    Apparently he was brought in by the Lions, but was not signed. But all the sites that report UFA signings have him with the Lions at that point - but he never officially signed.

    Well personally I like Mark Parson better than I did Brice McCain, so hopefully the Texans did pick him up.

    I was shocked when Parson went undrafted.

    Just in case anyone was wondering, if you go to ht.com and look at the roster...

    There's a Mark Parson who's a rookie CB from Ohio.

    So if this is the guy, who was undrafted, then didn't make it with the Lions......

    things that make you go.. hmmmmm

    don't get me wrong, if the guy can play, bring him in & let's see if we can find a spot for him.

    But there is a reason he wasn't drafted. There's a reason he didn't stick with the Lions. It just makes you wonder.

    Yea, because the recent Lions teams really make you think they are good judges of players... ;)

    Either way, I'm cool with it, like the sound of him being one of the press corners in the country (taken with a pinch of salt), but can't hurt to see if he's any better than our 'best sit back 15 yards, watch them make the catch and then miss the tackle' corners from the past few years...

    Yeah, it wasn't there earlier today. Trust me the first thing I did was go to the official site and check the transactions and roster.

    I thought he was with the Lions.

    I'm excited...I really liked him going into the draft

    The guy who tipped me says they never officially signed him, but only brought him in for a look. I thought he signed with'em too. /shrug

    May have found a clue as to why Parson remained a question mark despite his positives.

    From an interview in the 2008 preseason. (Keep in mind that in his 5 years in college, he only had a total of 1 interception in 2006, 2 interceptions in 2007 and 2 in 2008.)
