Jaguars Sign CB Parry Nickerson

Days after trading their top cornerback to the Rams, the Jaguars have made an addition to their defensive backfield, announcing today that they’ve signed free agent cornerback Parry Nickerson.

Jalen Ramsey hadn’t been in the Jaguars’ lineup since Week 3, meaning Jacksonville had been turning to second-year pro Tre Herndon to play outside cornerback opposite A.J. Bouye. Herndon hasn’t been very successful, grading out as a bottom-10 corner league-wide per Pro Football Focus.

Nickerson was well-regarded before becoming a fifth-round pick of the Jets in 2018, so there’s a chance he could see significant action by season’s end. However, the results of his rookie campaign weren’t anything special, as Nickerson ranked as the fourth-worst cornerback among players with at least 200 defensive snaps, per PFF.

A Tulane product, Nickerson played in all 16 games (two starts) for the Jets last season before being dealt to Seattle this offseason. He spent time with the Seahawks’ practice squad before being cut loose earlier this week.

Before signing Nickerson, the Jaguars also auditioned fellow corners Jordan Brown, Kenneth Durden, Arrion Springs, according to veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer (Twitter link).
