The Dallas Cowboys have followed through on expectations by exercising the fifth-year option on edge rusher Micah Parsons for the 2025 season, as confirmed by the team. However, the challenge lies ahead in securing him to a long-term contract extension.

Under the option, Parsons is slated to earn $21.324 million in 2025 as a defensive end, with the salary fully guaranteed.

This figure is determined based on the position at which the player logged the most snaps during the 2023 season, as stipulated in the collective bargaining agreement. Opting for linebacker would have incurred a cost exceeding $24 million.

While the Cowboys have solidified Parsons’ presence through 2025 with the option, their ultimate aim is to negotiate a comprehensive contract extension.

This move would offer long-term security beyond 2025 and potentially enable the team to utilize the franchise tag in 2026 should a deal not materialize.

Currently, San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa commands the highest salary among defensive players in the NFL, earning $34 million annually.

Parsons emerged as a standout performer for the Cowboys in 2023, tallying 14 sacks to lead the team. His impressive feat of recording at least 12 sacks in each of his first three seasons since 1982 puts him in elite company alongside Reggie White.

Additionally, his career total of 40.5 sacks ranks fourth among players in their first three seasons, trailing only White, Derrick Thomas, and Aldon Smith.

Since being selected in the first round of the 2021 draft, Parsons has consistently showcased his talent, earning All-Pro honors in his first two seasons and securing Pro Bowl selections each year.
