NFL rookie Micah Parsons used his first pro paycheck to keep a promise.
The 22 year-old, bought his mother a house, iHeart reports. The Pennsylvania native posted a picture of his mom, Sherese Parsons, giving him a piggyback ride in front of a home on Instagram Saturday (July 17). In the caption, he wrote, “Welcome mom this. All for you.”
According to iHeart, when asked what he’d do with his first check in an April BroBible interview, Micah Parsons said, “I want to finally get my own house, clear my mom’s debt, I moved a lot when I was younger and if I could put me and my mother into our own home and have something to call ours, it would be amazing.”
The Dallas Cowboys rookie linebacker is close with his mom. He once told PennLive that “if we had a million more Shereses, the world would be OK.”
The Cowboys selected Parsons as the 12th overall draft pick in 2021. According to iHeart, the former Penn State player signed a four-year contract worth a guaranteed $17 million with a $9.8 million signing bonus in June.
