Cam Taylor-Britt playing with chip on his shoulder in 2021
"I plan to give everything I have to Nebraska this year. Everything," Taylor-Britt said following practice on Monday.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Cam Taylor-Britt never wants to leave the field this season. And he’s willing to play anywhere to make that happen.
“I plan to play on special teams,” said the senior cornerback. “You can even throw some offensive packages in there. I don’t plan on coming off the field.”
Taylor-Britt is back for his senior season after flirting with the NFL this offseason. And he’s found a new sense of purpose back in Lincoln.
“I plan to give everything I have to Nebraska this year. Everything,” Taylor-Britt said following practice on Monday.
The All-Big Ten cornerback will be counted on in a variety of ways this season for the Huskers. He’ll anchor what a veteran secondary while also contributing on special teams.
The Alabama native had two interceptions and six deflections last year in a shortened COVID-19 season.
However, Taylor-Britt feels like he left a lot on the table despite a breakout junior season in 2020.
“I already knew I’d come back and just try to better myself and prove to myself that I’m able to do what I’m capable of doing,” Taylor-Britt said. “So I really didn’t have a decision on whether coming back or leaving. I’ve got this little chip on my shoulder right now and I would say the chip is that I didn’t play to my ability. I know people say that I played well and this and that. I feel like I’ve got a lot more in me.”
