Winner: Cowboys edge Micah Parsons

Aaron Donald's Hall of Fame career is on the descent, which is what happens when a player hits the wrong side of 30 years old.

Now, there's arguably only one other player who can match Nick Bosa's prowess, Dallas Cowboys edge Micah Parsons, who was the sole threat to Bosa's Defensive Player of the Year award.

When asked about Bosa's contract extension, Parsons told reporters the following:

"Super happy for Nick Bosa, man. He really showed why he was the best player in the league last year. It gives you something to chase, man. And not in terms of his contract, but in terms of how great he was. He knows that I’m coming for him. He even said, "I won this year, and I know you’ll be coming for it next year."

And I said, "You’re damn right.""

Parsons, who is entering year three of his own pro career, still has another two seasons on his rookie contract with the possibility of a fifth-year option that the Cowboys would be foolish to decline.

Now, and especially with the knowledge of how the edge-rushing market is going, Parsons' future deal will likely exceed that of Bosa, potentially by a big margin, too.

He'll have to wait a couple of years, but Parsons was just guaranteed a massive record-setting payday of his own.
