The Washington Commanders are gearing up ahead of the 2024 NFL season, and they are off to a good start. After hiring former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to be the Washington Commanders’ next head coach, Jahan Dotson perhaps wants to kick things up a notch, as he made a hilarious pitch to recruit another key member of the Cowboys.
The Washington Commanders wide receiver made a post on his X (formerly known as Twitter) account with an old January headline of Micah Parsons saying that he might join Dan Quinn wherever he goes if he leaves Dallas, making it known that he will gladly take the 2021 NFL Defensive Player of the Year as his new teammate.
“We welcome you with open arms brotha 😆” wrote Dotson in his post on Friday.
Why is Jahan Dotson “recruiting” Micah Parsons?
Micah Parsons is currently one of the best defensive players in the NFL. In the 2023 regular season, the 24-year-old linebacker registered 14 sacks, 64 combined tackles, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.
Under Dan Quinn, the Cowboys only allowed 3,481 passing yards in 2023, good for fifth-best in the NFL, while only conceding 18.5 points per game. The Dallas Cowboys finished the regular season with a 12-5 record to clinch the top spot in the NFC East, but the seventh-seeded Green Bay Packers eliminated them early in the postseason.
Jahan Dotson and Micah Parsons played together at Penn State, with the former recording 2,757 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns in four seasons and the latter tallying 191 tackles and 6.5 sacks in two years.
In 2023, Jahan Dotson recorded 49 catches for 518 receiving yards and four touchdowns on 83 targets. And with a new coaching staff in Washington, the 23-year-old wide receiver will aim for a better campaign in 2024.
Will Jahan Dotson get his wish?
Given that Micah Parsons still has two years left on his rookie deal with the Dallas Cowboys, it’s unlikely that he’ll join Jahan Dotson and the Washington Commanders anytime soon. However, with Dan Quinn in tow, the Washington Commanders might be a viable destination for Micah Parsons once he hits free agency after 2025.
With that said, it’ll be interesting to see how Dan Quinn and co. find a way to stop Micah Parsons when they face the Dallas Cowboys next season.
