Ben Bass relieved by first sack
By Todd Archer
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- With as much as Rod Marinelli pounds getting to the quarterback into the heads of his defensive lineman, Ben Bass was relieved to get one Saturday.
“Much needed,” Bass said. “I’ve been waiting for a sack all preseason.”
Bass dropped Cardinals backup Drew Stanton for a 4-yard loss in the second quarter in a drive that ended with a DeVonte Holloman interception.
He did not have much time to celebrate because Arizona was in hurry-up mode.
“I’m not much of a celebration guy anyways,” Bass said.
Bass is fighting for playing time – if not a roster spot – along the defensive line and has done a nice job during training camp.
“You work so hard to get to the quarterback throughout the week that when you don’t get there in a game, it stinks,” Bass said. “To finally get what you’ve been looking for is nice. Now I just need to go get some more.”
