Despite appearances, Will Parks claims innocence.
Second year Denver Broncos safety Will Parks is claiming a snapchat post from OTA’s was not intended for harm towards draft class mate Paxton Lynch. In the snap chat post, Parks shows Lynch missing his target drastically.
“Man, me and Paxton we came in together,” Parks said. “We didn’t even look at it how everybody else looked at it. We looked at it as hey man, it’s another day on Snapchat.”
Parks elaborated saying that not only was the post not intended to bash Lynch, but it was to show his own progress in his second season with the team. “I was just showing my progress. That had nothing to do with Paxton or anybody on the field. That was just me showing my progress and showing how hard we work back there at practice,” Parks said. “So, it was a mistake.”
Head coach Vance Joseph believes every word from Parks, claiming it was a simple mistake by a young player violating a small social media rule.
“He was trying to showcase how hard he’s working,” Joseph said. “But he can’t do it because what we do here, it’s personal and private. But his intent was not to hurt us or a teammate. It was more of a conversation and an education than a punishment,” Joseph said.
