Morris Claiborne graded himself pretty harshly on his rookie season, telling reporters after his one-interception, eight-pass breakups campaign that he’d give himself a C-minus. But Claiborne is looking forward to getting back onto the field to improve on that mark.
“My expectations are very high, not only for myself but for the team as well,” Claiborne said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I feel like we’ll have a breakout year this year if we continue to work the way we’ve been working and doing the things we’ve been doing.”
Claiborne has reportedly put on about six pounds of muscle this offseason, but perhaps more important, he’s entering his sophomore season feeling very confident.
“I believe my all-around game,” Claiborne said when asked what he felt he had most improved on. “I feel like I have improved much as a player. I think most of all, my confidence level is very high right now, and I plan on keeping it that way, going into the season with a good mindset.”
