Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker was inactive for Sunday's game, and his agent, Jimmy Gould, unloaded on Dolphins head coach Adam Gase following the team's 32-21 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Parker was listed as questionable with a quadriceps injury ahead of the game.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald shared the comments in which Gould said Gase is "not telling the truth" about why Parker was inactive and exhibits "incompetence":

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero (h/t Austin Knoblauch of NFL.com) reported Sunday morning that multiple teams have reached out to Miami about acquiring Parker, and the Dolphins want a third-round draft pick or better in return.

Despite the direct criticism of Gase and these trade rumors, Gould said he doesn't plan on asking for his client's release or a trade, per Jackson.

Parker is only 25 years old and was a first-round pick in the 2015 draft out of Louisville. He would hold significant upside at wide receiver for a new team if he is healthy, although he is yet to realize his potential as a member of the Dolphins.

The 2016 campaign was the best of his career, as he tallied 56 catches for 744 yards and four touchdowns. He has just two catches for 40 yards in two games this season for the 4-3 Dolphins.

Miami might need Parker in the immediate future, though. Albert Wilson suffered a leg injury Sunday; he left the game in the second quarter and did not return.

Wilson was the Dolphins' leading receiver prior to Sunday's loss with 23 catches for 359 yards and four touchdowns.
