Confirmed: Cowboys LB Micah Parsons wants to be an Eagle
Dallas Cowboys LB Micah Parsons has stayed true to his roots during the MLB postseason as he cheers for his hometown Phillies.
Texas may be Parsons’ current home, but he was originally born in Harrisburg, PA and played football at Penn State, where he became a national superstar.
Parsons hasn’t been bashful about his Phillies fandom, tweeting about them throughout their awe-inspiring playoff run. Before Game 3 of the World Series got underway at Citizen’s Bank Park, Parsons posted a tweet predicting a Phillies win. Naturally, Eagles safety CJ Gardner-Johnson chimed in on his photo with the FOX pregame crew.
The tweet was deleted, but we have a screenshot.

Lane Johnson also responded with the eyes emoji, to which Parsons replied he was just showing home support. I don’t buy it though — if Parsons had the chance to play for the city he grew up in, I’m sure he’d relish the opportunity.
Just ask Lehigh-native Kyzir White and Camden’s own Haason Reddick, who both signed with the Eagles in free agency last spring.
Micah Parsons, last year’s DROY, is tied for second in the NFL with 8.0 sacks and is the current favorite for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
As for the Phillies, they took down the Astros 7-0 behind five home runs to take the series lead, 2-1.
