NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Seattle Seahawks Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons are lucky to have defensive end Adrian Clayborn. The 29 years old will be an unrestricted free agent in 2018, and he’s doing his best to command a big pay day.

Even casual Falcons fans have noticed Clayborn over the past few games. Starting with his six sack performance against the Dallas Cowboys, Clayborn has had a productive few weeks. But it’s not a streak. He’s been a consistent performer all year.

Pro Football Focus highlighted the Falcons in their weekly observations piece. They included this interesting tidbit about Clayborn:

Defensive end Adrian Clayborn leads the league’s 4-3 defensive ends with 43 total quarterback pressures when rushing from the right side of the defensive line.

Good grief, Adrian. Stop making left tackles look foolish ... or don’t.
