DeMarcus Lawrence is staying away from predictions this year, for understandable reasons.
Last season, Lawrence said his “expectation” was that he’d post double-digit sacks in his rookie season. 10-plus. Then less than a week later, he suffered a fractured foot. He spent the first half of the season on the injured reserve and finished with exactly zero sacks (he posted two in the playoffs).
This year, when he was asked if he had a number of sacks in mind, Lawrence wouldn’t give one.
“No numbers,” Lawrence said, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “I know my goal is set high to be the best.”
Lawrence may very well have a specific number in mind, but he’s not about to tell the general public.
“I'm not saying them,” Lawrence said. “I jinxed myself last year.”
