Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons, one of our favorite in-person player-guests, joined PFT Live from Radio Row in Phoenix for a wide-ranging discussion about football generally — and about his team specifically.

When the time came to ask Parsons what he’d like to see the team do to improve in 2023, he didn’t hesitate.

Parsons wants Washington defensive tackle Daron Payne in Dallas. (In the attached photo, Parsons is perhaps making his case directly to Payne.)

Payne is due to be a free agent in March. And it’s unlikely that he’ll be available, given that the Commanders can use the franchise tag to hold him in place, if they don’t work out a long-term deal.

The Commanders made Payne the 13th overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. He has now concluded his four-year rookie contract and fifth-year option. He qualified for the 2022 Pro Bowl (or whatever it was).

Parsons had plenty more to say, about plenty of other things. Check out the attached video for the full session.

  1. He could really help the Cowboys by helping find a good defensive lineman they can draft. There’s only so much money available under the salary cap. Maybe Micah would offer to take less pay, then they would have more to spend.

  2. Let’s see , a farewell sendoff party to Fletcher Cox and a welcoming party for Payne , gonna love it. Philly will be a magnet for free agents this off season .

  3. These guys have no clue how the team has to manage the salary cap. They’re like kids grocery shopping with mom and want every chocolate or fruity cereal in the aisle.

  4. Payne isn’t going anywhere. He will be back in DC, either on a long term deal or franchise tag.

  5. As a lions fans I would not mind a sign and trade. we will have some cap room after some player are cut

  6. Winged warrior… just because Philly makes the Super Bowl doesn’t mean players will take a discount t to play there ask all the 12’s in Seattle that said the same thing about Wilson marshawn and the legion of boom….. they 1 SB and are bottom dwellers now…

  7. Little Mink Parsons needs to learn how to play effective defense. Running around all over the place is inefficient, ineffective, and will shorten his career. He needs to play smarter – that might be a problem because he now shows he is not that bright.

  8. I would love to keep Payne but the math might not work out. Chicago is going to push hard for him.
