Linebacker Micah Parsons is one of the most important players on the Dallas Cowboys roster if the franchise is to attain its Super Bowl ambitions this season.
Many questions have been asked if Parsons will make a move from linebacker to defensive end to better accommodate his impressive pass-rushing skills. Parsons himself recently insinuated an intention to change positions.
But defensive coordinator Dan Quinn recently ended that speculation.
“He’s a pass-rushing linebacker,” Quinn told reporters recently, according to Cowboys beat reporter Jon Machota. “If you ever need position changes, come to me. What I think he was probably trying to say is, ‘I’m really emphasizing some pass rush into my offseason.'”
Parsons previously clarified what he meant by the position change. He wants to get bigger this season, but only with good weight.
“Lol people here bulk and think I’m going from 246- 270!!” He wrote in a tweet on May 3rd. “If you seen any of my videos I’m still very slim, and I’m putting on good weight! I’m standing at 252 currently! I will not surpass 255 at any time in my career! This is just me putting on more muscle to carry the load!”
Only time will tell how the change will work out for Parsons and the Cowboys, who will enter the season as one of the favorites to win the NFC.
