Micah Parsons is sick to his stomach.
The Dallas Cowboys star linebacker, who knows all about being a nuisance to offensive linemen, really hated that a division rival drafted a player he did not want them to get.
The Philadelphia Eagles traded up with the Chicago Bears for the ninth overall pick and selected Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter on Thursday. The Eagles sent the 10th overall pick and a 2024 fourth-round pick to the Bears for the No. 9 pick.
That was a move that made Parsons ‘sick to my stomach.’

With the move, the Eagles bolster their defensive line after losing Javon Hargrave in free agency to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Eagles are coming off a Super Bowl run and just got even more dangerous.
Carter was the No. 1 player on ESPN analyst Mel Kiper’s board, but his draft status was unclear after he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing last month in connection with a fatal crash in January.
He was sentenced to 12 months of probation, a $1,000 fine, and 80 hours of community service and will attend a state-approved defensive driving course.
In that fatal crash, Georgia football player Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy were killed. Police alleged that LeCroy was driving an SUV that was racing Carter’s SUV before the wreck.
He can now silence a ton of his critics by living up to the defensive star role he played in college.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
