Packers Place DB Parry Nickerson On IR, Sign LB James Burgess Off Falcons’ PS

The Green Bay Packers officially placed DB Parry Nickerson on injured reserve Tuesday and released WR Kalija Lipscomb from their practice squad.

Field Yates reports that Green Bay has also signed LB James Burgess off of the Falcons’ practice squad.

Nickerson, 26, is a former sixth-round pick by the Jets in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Tulane. He is entering the second year of his four-year, $2,637,480 rookie contract when the Jets traded him to the Seahawks for a conditional 2020 seventh-round draft pick coming out of the preseason.

Seattle waived Nickerson and he later signed on to the Jaguars’ practice squad before being promoted to the active roster in December. The Packers signed him to their taxi squad before promoting him to the active roster a few weeks ago. 

In 2019, Nickerson appeared in four games for the Jaguars and recorded five total tackles, and no interceptions.
