While defensive end Sam Hubbard doesn’t sound like a guy necessarily aiming for the record books, he’s got some lofty goals of his own going into the 2023 season.
“I got double-digits in ’21 including playoffs, but I want regular-season double-digits,” Hubbard said, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com “I’ve been close. Last year I was on pace before I tore my calf … with (four) games to go and slowed me up.”
Granted, Hubbard also stressed he wanted to keep being one of the NFL’s best run-defending edges, too. But the flashier stats would be more of a visual representation of the further improved offseason work he’s putting into his body and preparation.
Aiding Hubbard’s pursuit? He says this offseason is the best he’s felt in a long time, with one goal still trumping everything else — a Super Bowl win.
