The Eagles add experienced DB Parry Nickerson to their roster

On Friday, the Philadelphia Eagles announced that they had signed veteran cornerback Parry Nickerson. Nickerson, 29, was one of the four tryout players at the Eagles’ mandatory minicamp this week.

Nickerson previously played for Eagles defensive coordinator Vic Fangio with the Miami Dolphins last season. During his time with the Dolphins, he appeared in five games and recorded five tackles on defense and 19 on special teams.

Since entering the league as a sixth-round pick of the New York Jets in 2018, Nickerson has played for six different teams, including the Seahawks, Jaguars, Packers, Vikings, and Dolphins. Throughout his career, he has accumulated 33 tackles and one pass defensed in 30 games.

Nickerson’s signing with the Eagles adds depth and experience to their cornerback position. His familiarity with Fangio’s coaching style and system from their time together in Miami could prove beneficial as he adjusts to his new team. The addition of Nickerson will provide valuable veteran presence to the team’s defense and give them more options in their secondary unit.
