I just went ahead and did it for the team.” And, his role with the Cardinals may also be a little different, too.“In the defense at Alabama, I could pass rush, one-on-one pass rush, but when it comes to our defense and how our defense…pretty much our big emphasis was to stop the run,” Stinson said. “We had to make sure we played the blocks right, so that’s what I did; played the blocks right and then convert afterwards.“(There were) a lot of teams that didn’t really get to see my pass rushing ability.”Stinson started all 14 games of his junior campaign, when he tallied 8.5 tackles for loss and three sacks.
