Micah Parsons has to have better self awareness than this.
During an interview on The Michael Irvin Podcast, Parsons described the Cowboys linebackers with him added to the mix as a “terrorist attack”:
“I bring speed, versatility, physicality,” Parsons explained. “I bring that dog and competitiveness. I’m going to make everyone around me better. I’m going to challenge everyone, push everyone. So, you know, I think our morale’s going to through the roof. I think when you add me next to Jaylon and Vander Esch, I think that’s scary, man. You’ve got three athletic linebackers that can all hustle, play and get to the ball. It was scary, now it’s a terrorist attack.”
Micah Parsons was one of the more polarized prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft as there had been rumblings of “character concerns.”
“We did a tremendous amount of homework,” Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones said regarding the selection of Parsons, per Sports Illustrated’s Mike Fisher. “We felt really good about anything he had that there might be a concern about. We did backwards, forwards, any which way you can do it.”
Some of the questions centered around a hazing incident at Penn State, but Parsons was not named in the suit. Parsons labeled this concern as “false allegations.”
