Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons was the target of criticism from a former wide receiver in a podcast interview on Wednesday.

Former Cowboys wide receiver Jesse Holley appeared on “Ray Ray’s Podcast” and called Parsons a “selfish” player over his alleged lack of desire to be anything but a pass-rusher.

“Micah Parsons, to me, is probably the most selfish player on this football team,” Holley said on the podcast.

“One of the reasons that Micah Parsons does not want to play linebacker is it’s too much of a responsibility. Maybe it’s just the youth in him. Micah doesn’t want to study. Micah doesn’t want to focus in, and I truly believe Micah wants to be great for Micah.”

Holley suggested that Parsons could be able to play “anywhere” if he watched as much film as some of the greats.

Parsons appeared to respond to the criticism in a post on X.
