Adrian Clayborn’s six-sack game could spark interest in past cards — and his lone (sort of) Falcons auto

Want to collect someone who’s very affordable and relatively solid on the field?

Atlanta Falcons defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn made a case for himself on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys when he did something that’s only been equaled or topped by three other players since 1982 when the sack became an official NFL stat. He had six sacks of Dak Prescott — just one short of the NFL record — and he wasn’t boisterous about the big game afterward.
