Micah Parsons Earns First-Team NFL All-Pro Honors

Once again, Micah Parsons is an AP first-team All-Pro.

The star linebacker shined for the Cowboys this season with 65 tackles, 13.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and one touchdown. The Defensive Player of the Year candidate has now been named a first-team All-Pro in each of his first two NFL seasons.

The reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year showed off his versatility this time around, as he made the first team as an edge rusher. Last season, he was a first-team All-Pro as a linebacker.

Parsons played two seasons at Penn State before being selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He totaled 191 tackles, 18 for a loss, and 6.5 sacks during his two-year Nittany Lion career.

Parsons and the Cowboys are set to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round of the playoffs at 8:15 p.m. on Monday, January 16.
