From there, Erickson signed on with the Texans as a free agent. However, he was released coming out of the preseason and signed on with the Panthers’ practice squad before being promoted in back in September of 2021. 

Washington opted to sign Erickson to a one-year contract last offseason and spent time on and off their roster. They re-signed him to a futures contract back in January but decided to release him in May.

Erickson joined the Jets last month but was ultimately released.

In 2022, Erickson appeared in two games for the Commanders and returned four punts for 25 yards.
