Biography

Pro Highlights

  • Became a prominent part of the rotation on the defensive line in his second season in 2013, playing in all 16 games with one start and serving as one of the featured interior rushers in the team’s nickel defense.
  • For the season, posted a career-high 37 tackles (22 solo) and ranked second on the club with a career-best 6½ sacks. The sack total tied for sixth among all NFL DTs and was the most by a Packers defensive lineman since NT B.J. Raji posted the same number in 2010.
  • Appeared in 14 regular season games and both playoff contests as a rookie in 2012, playing mostly in the defensive sub-packages as an interior pass rusher and also at times on special teams. Finished with 19 tackles (11 solo), two sacks, a team-leading two fumble recoveries and a pass defensed.
  • Both of his fumble recoveries came in games against Detroit, the second of which he returned for a 43-yard TD in Week 14, the longest fumble return for a score by a rookie in franchise history. Also became the first Packers rookie defensive lineman to return a fumble for a score since Ernie Pannell at Pittsburgh, Nov. 23, 1941.
  • Joined Dezman Moses, Nick Perry and Jerel Worthy as one of four rookie defenders to record a sack in 2012 and was part of a Green Bay defense that saw 15 different players do so during the regular season. That total was the second highest in the NFL in 2012 and also tied a franchise record (1987).
