Parker played in 27 games for Tampa Bay from 2010-12. He has 44 receptions for 596 yards and three touchdowns.
Adkins appeared in 24 regular-season games with Atlanta from 2009-11.
Kropog spent four seasons with Tennessee, playing on special teams. He was on the Redskins’ practice squad last season.
McManus had a tryout with the Colts this season. He set school records at Temple for points scored (338), field goals made (60), field goals attempted (83) and punting average (45.4).
