Linebacker Bruce Davis, a member of the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers, is was featured yesterday in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Outside linebacker Bruce Davis didn't make a single play as a rookie — no tackles, sacks or interceptions — which is why he couldn't wait to get into the weight room and bulk up so he never goes through a season like that again.
A third-round pick in 2008, Davis shouldn't be labeled a bust because he wasn't on the field long enough to show he could play. But he knows the pressure is on him to produce this year.
"Last year, I don't want to say it was disappointing," said Davis, who had 29 career sacks at UCLA. "I would have hoped it would have gone another way, but it didn't."
Davis expects making a bigger contribution in 2009 because "the difference between year one and year two is I'm a lot more comfortable."
It's a good read -- take your time with it.
