Mack Wilson says he's ready to step into a bigger role for Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns have lost LB Christian Kirksey to the Green Bay Packers and LB Joe Schobert to the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason.
That leaves former Alabama star Mack Wilson as one of the top linebackers heading into the 2020 season. Is he ready for a bigger role?
In a “Working From Home” video series segment for the Browns, Wilson said he’s ready for whatever the 2020 season brings his way:
“I feel like they left me with a lot of knowledge,” Wilson says in the video. “I learned a lot from them, and I feel like I want to build off that this year. Kind of try to be the guy in the linebackers room as far as my experience and as far as knowing what it takes and being able to produce on the field. I just feel like it’s going to be some big shoes to fill, but I’m ready for it. I’ve prepared my whole life for this. We’re just going to see how it goes.”
Wilson played in all 16 games for the Browns in 2019, starting 14 games. He recorded 82 tackles, 1 sack, 1 interception, 7 pass breakups and 1 forced fumble.
