The moment is here, defensive back Terrance Parks was activated to the Seattle Seahawks active roster Saturday. The 6-2, 215-pound safety fits the mold of the Seahawks’ big secondary, and he has the physical play to back his abilities of a 33 1/2 vertical jump and 4.58 speed.
The Seahawks are thin at the safety position with Kam Chancellor being questionable due to a groin injury and Jeron Johnson out for their contest against the Oakland Raiders Sunday after sustaining a concussion last week in their win over the Carolina Panthers.
Parks played his collegiate ball at Florida State, and in 2012, he participated in the NFL Regional Combine when it was held in Tampa Bay. Later, Parks was invited to the NFL Super Regional Combine in Detroit where many of the NFL scouts were in attendance. After not being drafted, the Kansas City Chiefs signed Parks for the 2012 NFL season.
After his release from the Chiefs, and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL, the Seahawks signed Parks in February and the former Seminole has been with the club ever since as he bounced from the cornerback position to safety.
Parks versatility as a defensive back may allow him to see the field against the Raiders.
