With the NFL season officially underway, former Wildcat Will Parks is the latest Wildcat on the move after signing with the Jets’ active roster.
Entering his seventh season in the NFL, former Wildcat safety Will Parks is rejoining the New York Jets.
Despite spending the first week of the season on the practice squad, the former Wildcat has signed with New York’s active roster.
Making news via social media, the New York Jets broke the news on Wednesday afternoon, and we are excited for ‘Philly Will’.
In his young football career, Will has already beaten the odds. Going from a lowly two-star recruit in 2012 that came to Tucson with the ambition of putting himself on the map. Will quickly rose to college stardom, eventually finding his way to the NFL.
After being drafted No. 219 overall in the 6th round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, Will has found a way to beat the odds again, now entering year seven of his NFL Career.
And ever since coming to the league, he has made himself known as being a key role and versatile athlete that can fill in at numerous spots.
Starting in 20 games out of a possible 76, Will has accumulated 189 tackles (138 solo), 8.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, and four interceptions. In his limited opportunities, he has risen to the challenge.
Despite seeing limited action with the Jets in 2021, Will Parks will get another opportunity after signing to their active roster.
Now 28, Will has plenty left to offer for teams, and as previously proven, if in the right system and situation, he can flourish. So with a young group surrounding him, perhaps New York is just the place for Will to succeed.
In 2022, Will should provide immediate depth to the Jets’ secondary, and his experience could be beneficial for this group!
