Dolphins defensive tackle Raekwon Davis injured his knee in Week 1 last season, forcing him to miss three games. The Dolphins missed him.
The former second-round draft selection is looking to build on what he did the 13 games of last season after he returned.
“I just keep working until I get what I want,” Davis told Aaron Wilson of profootballnetwork.com. “I keep my head down and I keep working.”
This offseason, Davis did just that. He won a practice jersey award for his work ethic.
“It wasn’t anything special,” Davis said. “Just effort, running to the ball. I’m just an effort guy. That’s it. ”
In 14 games his second season, Davis made 28 tackles, five quarterback pressures and half a sack. He wants to improve his pass rush after making none as a rookie.
“You just keep working,” Davis said. “That’s what it’s all about.”
