Quarterback Aaron Rodgers mentioned two NFL defensive players that all opposing offensive linemen must account for on every snap.
First, he said three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, a force of nature who can disrupt from the interior.
Then, he identified Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker Micah Parsons, who has been on a tear to start the 2023 NFL season.
He went into detail on Parsons.
“Micah Parsons is so dynamic, and it doesn’t matter who he’s going against…He seems to be moving around a lot more this season, and he’s a special player,” Rodgers shared about Parsons during his recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.

The former Penn State standout has seven tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and a pass deflection through two games.
Rodgers could have faced Parsons in Week 2 when the Cowboys hosted the New York Jets.
Unfortunately, the four-time NFL Most Valuable Player suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during their season opener against the Buffalo Bills.
In Week 2, Parsons sacked Jets quarterback Zach Wilson twice and had four tackles in their 30-10 victory over New York.
After two weeks, Micah Parsons is a significant factor behind the Cowboys’ defense being the top-ranked unit in the league.
They are the best in total yards allowed, passing yards allowed, and points allowed per game after impressively defeating the two New York squads.
Dallas’ run defense also ranks ninth, averaging 86 yards allowed per game.
Parsons will continue to lead the charge for the Cowboys’ defense as they visit the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.NEXT: Aaron Rodgers Speaks On His Return Timetable
