Micah Parsons gets honest over Cowboys' offseason inaction

What does the Cowboys star have to say about the lack of moves?

The Dallas Cowboys, led by team owner and general manager Jerry Jones, promised to go "all in" this offseason following what was their latest playoff disappointment in which they failed to make a meaningful run.

However, other than the return of former Round 1 draft pick Ezekiel Elliott, there has been a noticeable lack of major moves to improve the roster. What's more, several players are up for new contracts in short order, including Micah Parsons, CeeDee Lamb, and quarterback Dak Prescott.

For Parsons, he voiced his clear desire earlier this year for notable additions to the roster in order to help get them over the hump: 

“I hope that we go out and get the players we’re missing because we didn’t do that this year," he said on his podcast. "I hope that we challenge ourselves, become better and become greater.”

But is Parsons disappointed in the lack of meaningful moves by the Cowboys? It doesn't appear so. 

“It doesn’t disappoint me," he said. "If you figure out how the money goes and how the contract goes, you kind of understand that business side. I think CeeDee takes up the value of two or three players. You’re talking about $30 million-plus per year. If you do that, how can you afford to pay CeeDee Lamb? That goes on for other guys potentially.

“The mindset I have is we have seven All-Pros or however the count may be. It might be more, it might be less, we got at least three guys I know can be All-Pro. (He specifically mentioned RG Tyler Smith and TE Jake Ferguson as having All-Pro potential). I think a lot of guys are going to have breakout years. I think that plays into it, too. When you talk about all these guys, it just leads to saying, ‘Hey, when are the other guys going to step up and be better for the team?’

“I like what we’re doing. I think just being out here today, people are definitely going to be very surprised how good we really are.”

Will the lack of moves by the Cowboys come back to bite them next season?
