Disappointing Paul Kruger admits to feeling pressure


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Browns outside linebacker Paul Kruger had admitted that the pressure of performing up to his free agent contract has played a role in his lack of production.

"Not only do I put high standards up for myself, but you come in with a high bar and you want to live up to those," he told the team website. "People have been great to me here and for me, I feel a personal responsibility to be a good player and to produce. So, yeah, there's definitely been some pressure I've felt."

Kruger, who has contributed 36 total tackles, went five games without a sack before registering two against the Patriots.

Ray Horton: Paul Kruger likely 'frustrated' by lack of sacks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
