MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Dolphins receiver DeVante Parker, their top pick in this year's draft, made his preseason debut, the biggest news in the exhibition season finale Thursday between the Buccaneers and Dolphins won by Tampa Bay, 22-17.
Almost all of the Dolphins' starters sat out, and they didn't play either of their top two quarterbacks, Ryan Tannehill or Matt Moore. Parker played briefly, was targeted three times and caught one pass for 11 yards for Miami (1-3).
Some Bucs starters played a bit, but No. 1 overall draft pick Winston took the night off after warming up.
