Buffalo Bills linebacker Von Miller is first among all active players in career sacks with 117.5. At 33 years old and in his 12th season, Miller is almost certainly on the back-nine of his NFL career and now there’s a rising star who’s looking to him for help in how to best celebrate his own future sacks.
Only 23 years old and in his second NFL season, Parsons is coming off a debut campaign in which he won the 2021 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year Award and earned Pro Bowl and First Team All-Pro honors.
Through two weeks of action in 2022, Parsons is tied for the league lead in tackles for loss (four) and is tied for second in sacks (4.0), trailing only Alex Highsmith of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who took the lead on “Thursday Night Football.”
ESPN NFL analyst Domonique Foxworth said earlier this week that he believed Parsons was already the best player in the league.
Based on some recent history between Miller and Parsons on social media, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the veteran help out the youngster in the celebration department. Following the Cowboys’ Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on “Sunday Night Football,” Miller came to the defense of Parsons after the Penn State product was taken out on a perceived cheap shot by Bucs running back Leonard Fournette.
