Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David claims that he is feeling "more comfortable" than he did at the same stage last year ahead of the upcoming NFL season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David has claimed that he is "more comfortable" ahead of the upcoming season than he was at the same stage last year.

David enjoyed a successful rookie season during the last campaign, ending it as his side's leading tackler with 139 - a tally that put him joint-eighth in the whole league.

Asked what his goals were for the upcoming season, David told reporters: "Just don't have a setback. Everybody says the second year is where you fall off.

"I'm just trying to get better and keep myself from getting complacent and just try to add on to what I did last year.

"Last year, I came out running around like a chicken with the head cut off, but now I'm in the groove of things and becoming more comfortable."

David was the 58th overall pick of last year's draft.
