Micah Parsons is an NFL great athlete.
It’s possible that he could be a multi-positional player at the highest levels.
Recently, the Cowboys’ defensive star was spotted taking photos as a running back at Cowboys practice. He was asked whether this eyebrow-raising routine could be valid moving forward.
“That might be something that’s coming up,” he said with a smile, per team insider Jon Machota. “I don’t know. Maybe I’m just taking snaps.”

Parsons can already fill many roles on the defense side of the ball. Is he capable of switching to the offensive side of the ball?
Parsons, who is 6’3″ and 245 lbs, would be a good size to hold the ball. Outside linebacker Parsons is strong and large, but he also has speed. He ran a 4.39 40 yard dash time at 2021 combine.
Parsons was a good runner in his high school days. Take a look at some highlights:

Ezekiel Elliott, and Tony Pollard are two of the Cowboys’ solid running back options.
Parsons is the leading contender for this year’s Defensive Player Of The Year award.
