The Jets have half of their six-man draft class under contract.

The team announced that sixth-round picks Parry Nickerson and Foley Fatukasi have signed their four-year deals. A third sixth-rounder, running back Trenton Cannon, signed his deal on Friday.

Nickerson had 18 interceptions in 48 games for Tulane and will be vying for a cornerback job behind Morris Claiborne and Trumaine Johnson during his rookie season. Jets coach Todd Bowles said that Nickerson, who is 5’10” and ran a 4.32 40 at the Scouting Combine, will work both outside and in the slot in practice.

Fatukasi was taken a pick after Nickerson and the defensive lineman comes to the NFL after recording 19 tackles for loss and 14 sacks over 48 games for Connecticut.

Quarterback Sam Darnold, defensive tackle Nathan Shepherd and tight end Chris Herndon are the three picks who remain unsigned.

  1. Why is Sam Darnold not signed?
    Are the Jets going to risk alienating him to try and force an offset provision in case he’s cut?

    If Darnold is so bad he’s cut then the GM will be fired.
    Its a penny wise and pound foolish move to try and force the offset on such a high pick.
    The Chargers have possibly aliented Joey Bosa

  2. Relax….It is only a week after the draft, how many 1st or 2nd round picks are signed at this point? They are still all very much in their honeymoon phase….
