Micah Parsons didn’t mince words in his praise of 49ers’ quarterback Brock Purdy.

FOX Sports betting analyst Jason McIntyre believes Purdy’s odds to win MVP currently offer value, which is why he is taking a stab at 25-1.
Said McIntyre: “A mere 17 months ago, Brock Purdy was the last pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, an afterthought on a team that had traded up two years earlier for Trey Lance. And now Purdy is an MVP candidate? He has started and finished eight games in his career —…
