Clinton McDonald ready to bounce back in 2016.


NFL: DEC 28 Saints at BuccaneersClinton McDonald had 31 tackles last season and of those 31, 21 were solo. He was heading towards one of the best seasons of his career before he suffered a season-ending pectoral tear. If Mcdonald were able to finish out the season, he would have likely reached a career high in tackles, ultimately doubling his current career-high. Mcdonald, who is an incredible run stopper and a talented pass rusher, is poised to have a breakout season in 2016. Although he did not record any sacks in the six games he played, in 2015, within the new defensive scheme generated by mike smith, there should be no shortage of chances for McDonald to break his season high sack number. Currently, that number is five and a half.
