Started 13 of the first 14 games at left defensive end having beaten out the disappointing Da'Quan Bowers for the job in training camp. But recorded only one sack and was pretty much ineffective most of the time he was on the field. Had been thrust into the starting line-up when Adrian Clayborn was lost for the season and did better than expected ranking third on the team in sacks with four. Was signed with six weeks left in the 2011 season but was a gameday inactive for all bar the home finale with the Dallas Cowboys. Originally entered the league with the Philadelphia Eagles as a third-round pick (86th overall) in the 2010 draft.
