Micah Parsons has aspirations beyond just sacking quarterbacks and disrupting offenses. He's made it clear that he wants to be an impact player and boost his teammates performance and overall team dynamic.
“I’m trying to take everyone up a level because I’m trying to take this D-line up another level,” Parsons told reporters this past weekend. “That’s a part of growth.”
Next Gen Stats, which the NFL uses closely to monitor and track performance, recently highlighted Parsons as the leagues best disruptor, beating out the biggest names in the league like Nick Bosa. Parsons has certainly proven he has the ability to put immense pressure on the quarterback and he's now getting some serious recognition for his defensive ability.
Throughout the 2022 season, Parsons exhibited tremendous durability by participating in all 17 games. However, as the season progressed, the increased focus from opposing offenses and additional responsibilities at the defensive end position took a toll on his physical condition. Reflecting on this, Parsons expressed his commitment to self-improvement, recognizing the importance of investing in himself. While acknowledging the value of camaraderie with his teammates, he emphasized the significance of personal growth. Parsons emphasized his dedication to becoming the best version of himself, striving for greatness. To achieve this, he focused on enhancing his physique, consuming a balanced diet, and adopting a disciplined approach to ensure longevity both in his career and personal life.
“I just want to create the best version of me. I’m trying to be great. I wanted to put some size on and the right weight. I’ve been eating right, doing everything right so I can add longevity in my career and my life.”
Although the Cowboys may face some areas needing improvement on the offensive front, Micah Parsons remains a lethal weapon for the team's defense. Demonstrating strong leadership qualities, Parsons is fully committed to keeping his team united and constantly evolving as a player at the same time.
