4th Round pick 2013
Has become one of the longest-serving defensive linemen in franchise history and has now spent nine seasons starting along the defensive line. Has always been more of a run-stopper than pass rusher but set a career high in sacks during the 2021 season with four. Was originally a 4th round pick in the 2013 season whose cousin is Vernon Gholston, a 2008 1st round pick of the New York Jets.
