Parks, 27, is a former sixth-round pick by the Broncos in the 2016 NFL Draft. He finished his four-year rookie contract before signing a one-year deal with the Eagles in 2020.
Philadelphia then waived Parks and was later claimed by the Broncos. From there, he signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs and had stints with the 49ers and Dolphins before being claimed by the Jets last year. New York re-signed him to a contract in March but was among their final roster cuts and re-signed to the practice squad.
In 2021, Parks appeared in four games for the Jets and Dolphins and recorded nine tackles including one tackle for loss, and one pass defended.
