Seahawks sign SS Terrance Parks to futures contract

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE

In addition to signing LB Mike Taylor and TE Travis Beckum to futures contracts yesterday, the Seahawks also added SS Terrance Parks to their offseason roster. Parks is a 6'1, 233 pound former Florida State Seminole that spent time with the Chiefs out of training camp after going undrafted in 2012, then went to play in Canada for the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He's apparently battled injuries the past year or so, but I'm guessing Seattle would like to see what he can do when healthy.

Parks' pro day numbers are intriguing, and strikingly similar to that of one Kam Chancellor coming out of Virginia Tech.

Here are Kam's Combine numbers:

Obviously, Kam has some height on Parks, but physically speaking they're similar athletes. With the way that Seattle has been able to develop their defensive backs and indoctrinate them into the Seahawk system, it's an intriguing signing, at worst. Parks has a long, uphill battle to break onto this defense, obviously, but he's someone to watch over the summer.

Here is some film from his time in the CFL, going back to his time at FSU.
