Nickerson worked out for the Vikings recently.
Nickerson, 26, wound up signing on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois back in 2017. He was waived a few weeks into his rookie season and later signed to the Bengals’ practice squad.
Since then, Nickerson has been on and off of the Bengals’ active roster.
For his career, Nickerson has appeared in 37 games for the Bengals and recorded 72 tackles, no sacks, a forced fumble and two passes defended.
