Will Parks is staying in the AFC West, but making a significant upgrade to the talent around him.

The former Arizona Wildcats safety is reportedly signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It’s a one-year deal worth up to $1.13 million, per Schefter.

Parks confirmed the signing via Twitter:

Parks, 26, began the 2020 season with the Philadelphia Eagles and finished up with the Denver Broncos. He appeared in 10 total games last year, starting three with Philly, and recorded 31 tackles (three for loss) with a sack.

A sixth-round pick of the Broncos in 2016, the 6-foot-1, 194-pound Parks started 15 games over four seasons with Denver before signing with the Eagles as a free agent. He has four career interceptions, one each from 2016-19.

Parks played for Arizona from 2012-15, starting the final 40 games of his career, and unleashing one of the biggest hits in UA history against Oregon State in 2015.
