Once again, a tryout player earns a spot on the active roster.

On Friday, following the conclusion of the mandatory minicamp, the Eagles signed defensive back Parry Nickerson. Earlier this offseason, cornerback Shon Stephens was added to the roster following a rookie minicamp tryout.

The 29-year-old originally entered the league as a sixth-round pick of the Jets in 2018 out of Tulane.

At 5-10, 179 pounds, Nickerson has played in 30 games (three starts) for the Jets, Jaguars (2019), Packers (2020), Vikings (2021), and Dolphins (2023). Last season, Nickerson played in five games for Miami under the tutelage of Defensive Coordinator Vic Fangio, who is also now with the Eagles.

A native of Algiers, Louisiana, Nickerson spent five years at Tulane where he started 46 games and amassed 188 tackles, 16 interceptions (second in school history), 31 passes defensed (third in school history), and scored two touchdowns. As a senior, Nickerson was named by Sports Illustrated as a second-team All-American.

With Nickerson, the Eagles have 20 players in the secondary on the 90-man roster entering Training Camp.

On Saturday, June 1st, the Archbishop Wood Vikings captured their first Eagles Girls Flag Football League Championship of Pennsylvania with a 34-14 win over Gwynedd Mercy, while Kingsway took home the New Jersey crown with a 13-6 triumph over Egg Harbor Township. Abington and Palumbo were the other two Pennsylvania semifinalists, while Absegami and Master Charter of Camden represented New Jersey. The 2024 Eagles Girls Flag Football League Championships were presented by NovaCare Rehabilitation, while the 2024 Eagles Girls Flag League was presented by Gatorade, Hilco, and Planet Fitness.
