Biography

Pro Highlights

  • Undertook the challenge of learning the outside linebacker position prior to 2013, dropping significant weight to man the versatile stand-up post and seeing time in a hybrid OLB/DE role that allowed him to contribute career highs in every major statistical category.
  • Was pressed into extended action due to injuries and appeared on more than 660 snaps at OLB, in the process establishing personal bests for games played (16), starts (10), tackles (61), solo tackles (39), sacks (five) and INTs (one).
  • Appeared in 11 games in 2012, finishing with 18 tackles (10 solo) and ranking second on the team behind LB Clay Matthews with 4½ sacks. 
  • Was limited to just nine games over the course of his first two seasons, missing all but two games of his rookie campaign with abdominal/shoulder injuries and then suffering a knee sprain in training camp that sidelined him until midseason in 2011.
  • Injured his right shoulder in Week 5 and was eventually placed on injured reserve leading into Week 8 in 2010.
