(7/26/2013) Eagles defensive end Trent Cole has a chip on his shoulder coming into this season, reports phillynews.com.
"They'll have to drag me out of this facility, but I'm not going to fail," Cole said. "I'm going to give them no reason to have to get rid of me or anything like that. I'm going to do everything I have to do to make things work."
Cole struggled in 2012 with just three sacks and was not the pass-rushing threat the Eagles had expected.
"I told myself, I'll never forget that season, and I won't forget it after my career," Cole said. "I'll keep that with me. Some people say you're supposed to let it go, it's in the past. But having a season like that, it's going to drive me and motivate me this season."
He changed his body during the offseason, knowing he'll need to play more linebacker in the Eagles' defemse. He's expecting to weigh in at 263 pounds, which he said is around 11 pounds lighter than last year.
