Entering his eighth season in the NFL and his second with the Cowboys, linebacker Justin Durant is looking to have a complete year--something that he believes has eluded him since coming into the league with the Jaguars in 2007.
Durant has played in 16 games only once, as a member of the Detroit Lions in 2012, and this was his best season to date. He finished with a career-high 103 tackles, seven for a loss and three passes defensed.
Last year, his first with the Cowboys, Durant appeared in ten games and had just 24 tackles, two for a loss and a pass defensed.
"I haven't done what I felt I have the ability to do in the league, yet," Durant said, per FOX Sports Southwest. "I've probably shown what I can do and then gotten hurt, or something like that. I know that it's football, but I know I can do some things in this league. I just want to stay healthy and get out there on the field and show the world what I can do."
