Found 24 days ago on Pro Sports Daily:
Cardinals linebacker John Abraham set a big goal for himself last month. Abraham said that he is shooting for 20 sacks this season, which would be both a career high for Abraham and one of the best totals since the league started using sacks as an official statistic.

He just keeps getting it done. We are looking forward to another big year out of him.”
