George Selvie Looking to Build on 2013 Campaign

Selvie had career highs in sacks and tackles in his first season with the Cowboys



    After quietly signing with the Dallas Cowboys last July, defensive end George Selvie came out of nowhere to record seven sacks, more than any player that is still on the roster (DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher had more, but as you’ve probably heard, they’re in Denver and Washington these days, respectively).

    But Selvie isn’t content with his somewhat surprising 2013 campaign. In fact, he believes he can do better.

    “Definitely I sat back and said I had a pretty good year, but having a coach like Rod [Marinelli], he said I could've had a better year,” Selvie said, per ESPN Dallas. “He showed me all my bad plays and said, ‘Look at how many plays you were that close to getting if you did this.' I definitely take that into consideration and work on the things I did wrong.”

    Aside from the seven sacks, Selvie also had a career-high 45 tackles--his previous high was 21, in his rookie year--and a forced fumble.

    “Some people say I probably won the job by default last year because a lot of people got hurt, but I think I came in and did what was asked of me,” Selvie said. “I went out there, played well and that's what I've got to do this year.”
