Kayvon Thibodeaux Targets Availability For Every Game In 2023

New York Giants linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux aims to be an impactful player following an unsatisfactory rookie season in 2022.

Kayvon Thibodeaux didn’t make his NFL debut until Week 3 due to a sprained MCL. This gave the likes of Sauce Gardner and Adrian Hutchinson a head start on the No.5 overall pick.

Kayvon Thibodeaux still finished fourth in the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year voting. However, the linebacker insists his performances last season were far from his best.

“I think every time you look back at a play, you feel like you could have ate a little bit more,” he said. 

“Last year’s film kind of disgusts me a little bit when I look at myself. I get a little cringe feeling. But it definitely is, like I said, a platform to continue to grow.

“Anytime you look at your younger self, you always see how you’ve evolved and matured. So, now it’s me understanding who I was and who I am now and who I’m consistently growing to be.”

Not being available for every game last season bothers Thibodeaux. He says he’s learned from the experience, and rather than setting individual goals, he wants to be someone his teammates can count on.

“Last year I had so many goals and I had so many numbers and statistics on what I wanted to be,” Thibodeaux said. “I just want to be great. I want to help my team win. I want to be a guy who can make plays and make the plays when they count. I’m not really too fixated on numbers, I’m just fixated on really having an impact every game and being available every game.”
