The Buffalo Bills Sign Linebacker Manny Lawson
Lawson signed a four-year, $12 million contract, which is an extremely cap friendly deal compared to some players at that same position around the league. Lawson has played for the San Francisco 49ers for five seasons before he played the last two with the Cincinnati Bengals, and will be 29-years old when week one of the 2013 NFL Season kicks off.
While Lawson has only had 18 sacks in his seven-year career in the NFL, he feels that he can do some damage in Western New York.
Another good thing about Lawson coming to the Bills is that he’s reunited with his college teammate Mario Williams, and they were a force of havoc together. He is 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, and has an explosive motor. Also, he could flourish under Mike Pettine and his hybrid defensive scheme.
While this will not be the definite answer that will lead to the Super Bowl for the Bill, it could be a solid piece the team moving in the correct direction. This signing of Lawson also arguably fills the biggest problem of the 2012 Bills: an abysmal linebacker corps.
The team now needs to move on and look at inside linebacker, quarterback and wide receiver to fill up roster spots, and put a competitive product out there this year and years forward.
