There isn’t much that Dallas Cowboys rookie linebacker Micah Parsons can’t do. We have seen him rush the passer and drop into coverage and excel at both. With 60 tackles, 13 sacks, and three forced fumbles in his first year in the league, Parsons has emerged as a superstar. Highlight footage even circled the internet showing Parsons’ impressive running back skills from his high school days.
Proving he is always hungry, the rookie shocked the world again in the Week 15 game vs. the Giants.
Parsons single-handedly stopped Giants receiver Kenny Golladay from scoring a touchdown. But not at the linebacker position. Parsons was remarkably put in the cornerback position, and yet again succeeded.
After the game, Parsons even admitted to reporters that there isn’t another player like him in the game. He told Jori Epstein from USA Today Sports:
"“There can’t be anybody like me. The fact I can do those type of things, sometimes your impact doesn’t need to be made in the backfield. Sometimes it will be made somewhere else, and I think that’s where my impact was made today.”"
There may be one thing Cowboys’ rookie Micah Parsons is not great at
But, thanks to an entertaining video on the Dallas Cowboys official Facebook page, we may finally have found something that Parsons isn’t phenomenal at.
In a sponsored segment, Parsons takes on cornerback Trevon Diggs in a game of Truth or Dare Jenga. At one point, Diggs dares the rookie to do a freestyle rap. Let’s just say it didn’t go well.
Watching Parsons try to string together a freestyle rap is probably as painful as his sacks feel for quarterbacks. It’s so bad that it literally makes Diggs, a pretty quiet guy, laugh out loud.
After the feeble attempt at a rap, Diggs tells Parsons to “stick to football.”
All jokes and games aside, Parsons continues to increase his sack and tackle numbers in hopes of being only the second rookie in NFL history to win Defensive Player of the Year. Let’s just hope he doesn’t try and drop a verse in his acceptance speech if he wins.
