The Oakland Raiders are aiming for Bruce Irvin to best last year's career-high of eight sacks.

Paul Guenther, the team's new defensive coordinator, wants to see Irvin reach double-digits.

"I knew he was a really gifted rusher," Guenther said. "Just coming here, I thought his best assets for us was to go forward rather than go backwards. He's done a good job with what we're asking him to do in the base fronts.

"Obviously, we know what he can do as a pass-rusher. Hopefully, we can get him over a double-digit [sack] mark this year. That's the goal for him."
