“I’m just so sick to my stomach right now”: Cowboys LB Micah Parsons strongly reacts to Eagles’ move to draft Jalen Carter by almost walking off set

The 2023 NFL Draft was full of surprises, but none quite like the reaction of Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons when the Philadelphia Eagles selected Jalen Carter with the ninth overall pick. Parsons, who was covering the draft for Bleacher Report, was so shocked and sickened by the Eagles’ move that he almost walked off the set.

The Philadelphia Eagles used their tenth overall pick to bolster their defensive line in the 2023 NFL Draft by selecting Jalen Carter, a former Georgia teammate of Jordan Davis, the Eagles’ 2022 draftee. Although Carter was a highly-rated prospect, concerns about his involvement in a crash that killed two people raised questions about where he would be drafted. 

Despite this, Parsons, a linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys who was covering the draft for Bleacher Report, was disappointed that the Eagles had managed to secure such a talented player. 

He described himself as feeling “sick” and “shocked” that so many teams had passed up on Carter, whom he considered one of the best players in the draft class. 

Despite his disappointment, Parsons acknowledged that Carter was an “A-plus pick” for the Eagles and that he could not be mad at it.

“I’m just sick. I’m just sick to my stomach right now,” Parsons said. “I can’t believe that many teams passed up on him.”

“I’m just so shocked eight teams let Jalen Carter fall to (pick No.) 9,” Parsons said. “The value of that pick is crazy. … That’s an A-plus pick. I’m sick, but I can’t be mad at it.”

Jalen Carter is a Promising Addition to the Eagles’ Defensive Line

Carter’s physical attributes and skill set make him a valuable addition to an Eagles’ defensive line that already boasts a number of impressive players, including Jordan Davis. If he can stay on track, he has the potential to make a significant impact and make the Cowboys’ rivals a force to be reckoned with in the NFC East.

In the end, it remains to be seen how Jalen Carter will perform in the NFL and whether he will live up to the hype that has surrounded him. However, one thing is certain: his selection by the Philadelphia Eagles has stirred up emotions and reactions from both fans and players alike.

Micah Parsons‘ candid and passionate response to the pick shows just h-ow intense the rivalry between the Cowboys and the Eagles can be, and it sets the stage for some exciting match-ups in the future. 

Only time will tell if Carter can help the Eagles maintain their status as one of the league’s best defenses, or if Parsons and the Cowboys will rise to the challenge and take their place at the top of the NFC East.
