Micah Parsons Reinforces Disappointing Rumors With Reaction to Tyler Guyton Pick

For a guy already facing rumors of having "worn out his welcome" in Dallas, Micah Parsons was not shy about expressing his disgust in the Cowboys' first-round pick on Thursday night.

Many Dallas Cowboys fans thought Jerry Jones finally got his first W of the offseason last night, pulling off a solid trade-back and still landing a top offensive line prospect to replace Tyron Smith while adding some extra draft capital in the process.

Micah Parsons disagrees.

Parsons was on a live NFL Draft stream with Bleacher Report, and he could not hold back his frustration when the Tyler Guyton pick was announced. This is rough.

This is not a good look for Parsons. Going from raving about how great the Philadelphia Eagles' pick was to immediately being pissed about your own team's pick is not exactly what you want to see from a guy who should be a locker room leader. And it really doesn't do anything to dispel those rumors from a few weeks ago that Parsons has "worn out his welcome" in the Cowboys' organization.

And imagine being Guyton? Rather than having one of the team's biggest stars embracing him, one of the first things that happens when you become the newest Cowboy is that a supposed leader is upset that you're on the team at all?

And it's not like Parsons exactly has a great track record as a draft analyst. He was head-over-heels with the Mazi Smith pick last year.

I'm not about to jump on the "Parsons should be traded" train or anything, but this is not the behavior you want to see from a guy that would command some record-breaking money in a contract extension. At the end of the day it's what happens on the field that matters, and Parsons leaves no doubts when he's on the field.

But that doesn't make it any less of a disappointment. And for a front office clearly concerned with team image, there may well be some important decision-makers who absolutely do think this contributes to the "trade Parsons" push.
