Micah Parsons “sick to my stomach” the Eagles got Jalen Carter

Mike Florio and Chris Simms examine how Jalen Carter slipped to No. 9 in the 2023 NFL Draft and map out how the Eagles' defense will be next level.

Cowboys outside linebacker Micah Parsons wasn’t happy to see the Eagles get better during the first round of the 2023 NFL draft.

Parsons was providing live draft commentary at, and when the division rival Eagles selected one of the most talented players in the draft in defensive tackle Jalen Carter, Parsons was not happy.

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

Parsons was in a much better mood when the Cowboys drafted defensive tackle Mazi Smith 17 picks later, celebrating Smith as a teammate who is going to make a difference. But it’s hard not to think that the Eagles were already the best team in the NFC East, and only widened the gap on the first night of the draft.
