Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson still isn't completely sold on Parsons being the best rookie in the NFL, though.
Per the Hall of Famer point guard, it's been Ja'Marr Chase who's stolen most of the headlines:
"I’m really torn between Bengals receiver Ja’Marr Chase, Cowboys defensive end Micah Parsons, and Patriots QB Mack Jones for Rookie of the Year. If I had to pick one, it'd have to be Ja'Marr Chase," Magic said. "Chase showed up and showed out in the biggest games of the season and is one of the most exciting players in the NFL!" he added.
Fortunately for both Chase and Parsons, the NFL hands out Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards.
