Nickerson was on and off of the Bengals’ active roster before joining the Vikings last month. He was among Minnesota’s final roster cuts this offseason and has been on and off of their roster this season. 

For his career, Nickerson has appeared in 38 games for the Bengals and Vikings while recording 72 tackles, no sacks, a forced fumble and two passes defended.

Meadors, 23, originally signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2019 out of UCLA. He bounced on and off Minnesota’s active roster last season before being cut and re-signed to their taxi squad last week. 

In 2019, Meadors appeared in two games and recorded two total tackles and no interceptions.
