After what felt like years of hype, DeVante Parker finally broke out with a stellar 2019 campaign. Parker finished the year with 1,202 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns, but he was even better down the stretch. In fact, from Week 11 on, Parker had more receiving yards (733) than anyone else in the NFL.

But his most impressive game of the year might've come in his final showing, as he dominated the reigning Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore to the tune of 8 catches for 137 yards. And recently, Parker took to Instagram to poke a little fun at his divisional rival.

“Ignore him and attack the football”

This is actually a response to an Instagram Gilmore had posted in 2018, as Parker just quoted and re-purposed the caption Gilmore used.

Ignore him and go get the Ball ?

Obviously, this is all in good fun between two great players and division rivals.

While Gilmore won the first battle of 2019, holding Parker without a catch, Parker clearly won the second. Hopefully we'll get to see another great battle between these two once the season kicks off.
