Former New York Jets cornerback Parry Nickerson has landed a spot on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad. Nickerson, originally a draft pick out of Tulane University in the sixth round, 179th overall by the New York Jets in the 2018 draft, tied for the fastest time in the 2018 NFL Combine’s 40 yard dash.
Nickerson totaled 21 tackles and one pass deflection with the New York Jets in 2018. Nickerson was let go by the New York Jets and was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks and eventually signed to their practice squad.
Nickerson may be on a practice squad, but this is most certainly not indicative of his talents. He is skilled at the cornerback position and in defense in general. He never runs out of fuel and always goes for it when it comes to taking down any offense he faces. This dates back to his days playing for Tulane University’s Green Waves Football Team.
Nickerson is also a pillar in the community and has hosted a two-day football camp for local instilling local youth with integral information needed for football and life in general!
Nickerson’s credits his beloved grandmother, who sadly passed away from cancer, for teaching how to be strong and resilient and fight through any adversity. Nickerson does just that every time he steps out on the field and in life in general. He never lets anything get him down. He is a hustler and immerses himself in preparing to be the best that he can possibly be.
