Senior Bowl Notes
- Sam accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile
- During Senior Bowl week, Sam was a fish out of water. He played mainly the Sam spot in the 4-3 and rarely got a chance to rush the edge during pass rush drills. When he did, he didn't stand out pressing the edge. Perhaps no player relentlessly attacks the edge as much as Sam, yet he really didn't get to show that in Mobile.
