Micah Parsons, Dallas Cowboys pass rusher, feels the NFL will have difficulties handling him next season.
Cowboys' greatest defensive player skips off-season conditioning to become stronger: The beast grows.
When word leaked on Wednesday and Cowboys Twitter went into a tizzy, Parsons sent a message: He isn't packing on weight.
He's bulking up to withstand 17-game double- and triple-teams. “People hear bulk and think I’m going from 246-270!” he tweeted.
If you've seen my vids, I'm still skinny and gaining weight! I’m at 252! 255 is my career limit! I'm bulking up to carry the load!"
He told the Dallas Morning News: “Just wanted to increase my explosiveness and add on weight the right way. Strengthen it, eat well, and all I can to be the best player.”
Instead of roaming around to find better matchups and responsibilities, Parsons will play defensive end.
“I can just study that one guy that I just need to beat on Sunday,” Parsons said. I studied the line, running backs, receivers, and concepts to win faster.
Now I can focus on ending the run and beating the man in front of me.”
