Cardinals DE Chandler Jones is coming off of a great 2018 season in which he posted a franchise-record 17 sacks.
“I want more,” Jones said, via AzCardinals.com.
Despite the impressive season in terms of getting after the quarterback, Jones says he doesn’t want this to be his peak as an NFL player.
“You never want to be a one-year guy,” Jones said. “Me having a decent season last year, I never want to look back at the end of my career and say, ‘I had 17 sacks’ and then you kind of (fade) away. You want, after that one year, ‘He got better. It pushes me even harder. It makes me want to do even better.”

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett, who worked his way back from a broken leg last year, says he’s now “healthier than I’ve ever been” for spring and summer workouts.
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll added Lockett being healthy has been “really positive” for them.
“It’s real positive, really positive,” Carroll said, via Seahawks.com. “You guys have watched him, and he’s just such a wonderful kid on your team, and there’s just been a spirit about him about wanting to compete and extra stuff and always at it, and then last year he couldn’t do that, he wasn’t able to. He was rehabbing and just barely getting on the practice field for the most part. And now he’s back freed up and ready to go again, so you see all that great spirit and the energy that he generates. It’s wonderful to see because he’s such a great kid.”
Lockett explained that having to play at less than full speed “taught me resilience, it taught me how to keep on fighting. Not everything is going to be good, you’re not going to be 100 percent all the time, but you’ve got to find a way to do what you can to help the team be successful.”
