Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is clarifying remarks he made to Sports Illustrated about his personal motivations in the NFL.

In a recent SI cover story, Lawrence told Michael Rosenberg that he does not “have this huge chip on my shoulder” and said he didn’t need to succeed in the NFL for his life to be okay.

“It’s not like I need this for my life to be OK,” Lawrence said, via Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk. “I want to do it because I want to be the best I can be. I want to maximize my potential. Who wouldn’t want to? You kind of waste it if you don’t.

“I don’t have this huge chip on my shoulder, that everyone’s out to get me and I’m trying to prove everybody wrong. … I think that’s unhealthy to a certain extent, just always thinking that you’ve got to prove somebody wrong, you’ve got to do more, you’ve got to be better.”

Some people questioned Lawrence’s comments, wondering whether they reflected the kind of attitude that many expect from a top-tier NFL quarterback. That prompted Lawrence on Saturday to issue a statement on Twitter clarifying his remarks.

It’s a shame Lawrence had to clarify this, especially because it’s essentially what he said in the initial interview. Football is important to him, but it isn’t an all-consuming aspect of his personality. That being true doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about being successful, or that he won’t work hard once he makes it into the league. In fact, all of that is reflected in his decision on whether to attend the NFL Draft.

Lawrence is set to be the No. 1 pick in the draft regardless of comments like these. Expect him to be a success once he gets to the NFL, too.
