RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-04-24

The Cowboys have picked up Parsons' fifth-year contract option, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The move keeps the 2021 first-rounder -- who played the majority of his snaps at defensive end in 2023 -- under contract with Dallas through the 2025 campaign. Per Gehlken, the star defender's salary in his fifth NFL season will be $21.32 million. The 24-year-old is coming off another productive effort with the Cowboys, in which he racked up 64 tackles and a career high 14 sacks in 17 regular-season outings.

Another big season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-30

Parsons recorded 64 tackles (36 solo) including 14.0 sacks with two passes defended, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 17 regular-season games in 2023.

The versatile pass rusher delivered at least 13.0 sacks for the third straight season to begin his NFL career, finishing tied for seventh in the league with Myles Garrett. Parsons remains a threat to take down the QB on every play, but the potential departure of defensive coordinator Dan Quinn this offseason could force the 24-year-old linebacker to learn a new scheme for the first time in his career in 2024.

New career high in sacks

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-08

Parsons recorded five tackles (four solo) including a sack in Sunday's win over the Commanders.

The takedown of Sam Howell gave Parsons his 14th sack of the season, a new career high after he racked up 13 as a rookie in 2021 and 13.5 last season. He tied Myles Garrett for seventh in the league, and Parsons' remarkable consistency has marked him as one of the NFL's elite defenders and pass rushers. He'll take aim at Jordan Love when the Cowboys face the Packers on Sunday in the wild-card round.

Six tackles in win

Parsons finished Saturday's 20-19 win over the Lions with six tackles (five solo).

Parsons was tied with Jourdan Lewis for the fourth-most tackles on the Cowboys' defense in Saturday's victory. He's six tackles and 0.5 sacks away from matching his totals from last season when he earned his second First-team All-Pro selection. Dallas can lock up the NFC East title and the second seed in the conference with a Week 18 win over Washington, so Parsons should see the field as much as he has all season.

Seven tackles in loss

Parsons recorded seven tackles (two solo), including a half-sack, in Sunday's 22-20 loss to the Dolphins.

Parsons wasn't quite able to be the game wrecker he has been in the past, but he did get to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for a half-sack in the loss. The linebacker will look to have a greater impact on the outcome of the game when the Cowboys host the Lions on Saturday in a crucial Week 17 matchup.

Full participant in practice

Parsons (illness) was a full participant in practice Thursday after being listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

The two-time First Team All-Pro is trending in the right direction for the Cowboys' matchup with the Bills on Sunday. Parsons has yet to miss a game this year and has recorded 27 quarterback hits, 14 tackles for losses, 12.5 sacks, two pass breakups, one forced and one fumble recovery.

Estimated as limited Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-13

Parsons (illness) was estimated as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice, Todd Archer of reports.

The Cowboys merely held a walkthrough and didn't actually practice. The third-year pro has played in all 13 games this season, racking up 44 tackles (25 solo), 14 TFLs, 27 quarterback hits, two pass breakups, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and 12.5 sacks. He's stuffed the stat sheet and is in the mix for Defensive Player of the Year.

Adds to sack total again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-12

Parsons tallied two tackles (two solo), including a sack, during Dallas' 33-13 win versus the Eagles on Sunday.

Parsons was productive once again for Dallas as he managed to record yet another sack. The 24-year-old has now compiled 12.5 sacks on the campaign, which is just one sack shy of his career high.

Added back to injury report

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Parsons has been added back to the injury report with an illness ahead of Sunday night's game against the Eagles, but he has no designation since he is expected to play, Todd Archer of reports.

Parsons has played in all 12 games this season and recorded 42 tackles, including 11.5 sacks, two passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. The two-time First Team All-Pro has missed only one of the Cowboys' 46 regular season games in his three seasons.
