Jacksonville Jaguars outside linebacker K’Lavon Chaisson is among the Bengals quarterback's former teammates who will now be making an impact for the opposition. According to Bleacher Report’s Tyler Conway, Chaisson is admittedly looking forward to finally getting some hits on his fellow Tiger:
“Joe Burrow. Never got a chance to touch him at practice, never got a chance to breathe on him. Will be the first person I wanna hit. After I get him down on the ground, I’ll lay on him for a good ten seconds and take that fine. Make him feel what he missed out on for years.”
Chaisson's comments are certainly understandable considering all the precautions taken surrounding the starting quarterback these days. It is safe to say that he has plenty of pent-up energy that he needs to let out.
Fortunately, Chaisson will have an opportunity to do just that with a scheduled road trip to Cincinnati. Although it remains to be seen just when that will be, he will have the Bengals game circled on his calendar.
Chaisson will be tasked with helping to alleviate some major turnover Jacksonville's defense has ushered in during recent years. He has good reason to be confident that he will be able to get to Burrow after finishing his final season at LSU with a team-leading 6.5 sacks, 13.5 tackles for loss, and six quarterback hurries en route to First-Team All-SEC honors.
Burrow will certainly need to watch out, as the new Bengals quarterback will have a target on his back as the No. 1 pick. The expectations are certainly high for the youngster, and he'll have to quickly get used to playing in the NFL.
