Examining Micah Parsons’ Fifth-Year Option and the Dallas Cowboys’ Postseason Formula

For those wondering, the fifth-year option deadline applies to only one player, with linebacker Micah Parsons the only former first-round pick in 2021.

However, he is also eligible to begin contract negotiations, so time will tell what direction the Cowboys take with Parsons: They could extend him this offseason or simply exercise his fifth-year option and address the matter in 2025.

On the other hand, executing the fifth-year option before the deadline doesn’t preclude them from agreeing to a new deal thereafter, but it would guarantee that he’ll wear a Cowboys uniform in 2025, regardless of anything.

As the months go by, the official start dates for the minicamp, training camp and preseason will be revealed.

Finishing with a third straight 12-5 season shows that the Cowboys have figured out the regular-season formula, one that gave them the second seed and second division title in just three seasons, but what they do next will determine whether they figured out the formula for the postseason.
