|Contract:||4 yr(s) / $17,079,793|
Dallas selected Parsons at No. 12 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft and seems quite pleased with the decision.
“You can see the ability and just the instinct, the way he can react and get off the spot at the linebacker position,” head coach Mike McCarthy. “We’re just going through our installs, going through our concepts. But he’s fitting in real nicely.”
According to Cowboy Maven, SI’s dedicated Dallas site, Parsons quickly integrated himself into the defense and could start at middle linebacker this season. Parsons also has showcased his varied skillset by working at outside linebacker and on the edge as a pass rusher.
“It’s one thing to cover, and one thing to tackle,” Parsons told the media after a recent workout, “but if you can do the trifecta and do all three – cover, tackle and blitz and get pressure – then that’s what makes you a good ballplayer.”
Micah Parsons sacks
Parsons now has 19 sacks in 18 career NFL games, and Sunday’s contest isn’t over yet.
With Dak Prescott sidelined, the Cowboys will need the defense to shoulder a heavier burden. Parsons is leading the way while cementing his status as an NFL superstar.
Dallas has already sacked Burrow six times and is fighting to maintain a 17-9 edge in the fourth quarter.
Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News offered lofty praise that may not fall under the “prisoner of the moment” category.
“It requires restraint not to call him the best defensive player in game today,” Gehlken wrote. “He is that disruptive, that versatile. The combination is one of one.”
After starting the season with two sacks in Week 1, the Dallas Cowboys star has another two sacks on Sunday. He’s dominated the Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive line to knock down Joe Burrow four times.
The eerie, creaky door always had a way of telling the temperature of the small, bare apartment devoid of any presence or personality.
If the door closed with the metallic slam of a prison cell, there would be trouble. If it hummed shut with a subtle click, there would be none.
Almost every night came with a slam. Followed by a torrent of heavy footsteps.
Those were the nights Andre Odom and his brother Robert would look at each other in their dim bedroom, anxious of what was coming, their hands clenched tight as they braced themselves for what inevitably arrived—a beating.
Whether it was with big, meaty hands, or with a wire or a belt, and whether it was induced by PCP, alcohol, or whatever the drug of choice was at the time, the boys’ father had to take his rage out on someone.
After opting out of the 2020 college football earlier this week, former Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons plans to sign with an agency, and he has one in mind. According to Adam Schefter, Parsons is expected to sign with NFL agents Andre Odom and David Mulugheta of Athletes First.
