Take 5 with Sean Spence


Linebacker Sean Spence returned to the field in 2014 after missing the previous two seasons with injuries and now takes a look back at what the season was like for him and where he can improve.

How would you evaluate your play last season?"I thought it was pretty good. I still feel like I can be better in so many areas. I think with time it will come. I have been around three years but only played one. There are a lot of things I can do better."


After injuring his knee in 2012, Sean Spence made his first NFL start on Sunday vs the Buccaneers.

What can you improve on?**
"I want to get better at getting off blocks, making tackles, communicating better and making sure all of the guys are on the same page. I want to be a better leader, and lead by example."

What did you learn from fellow linebacker James Harrison last season?"He leads by example. When he says he is going to do something, he does it. He is a warrior on the field. When he is out there he is giving you his all. It's only right that you give him yours."

Was last year the most fun you have had playing football?"We had a winning record, I had a chance to play with some great teammates, and I finally got to play for Coach (Mike) Tomlin, who is a great coach. And I had the opportunity to play in a playoff game. There wasn't anything better."

What stands out from last season?
"It's hard to pinpoint one thing because there were so many. I am just grateful to have been out there. To put on a helmet, go to practice every day, go to meetings and know the coaches are coaching you up after being invisible for two years. It felt great."
