Lawson made an instant impression on the Bengals coaching staff as a rookie. From week one he had a significant role on defense, never playing fewer than 17 snaps in any game. At 260 pounds Lawson is the proverbial tweener. He displayed an impressive ability to get around the corner, recording 8 sacks last year, but struggles versus the run limited what the coaches could do with him. This summer there is a new plan. In an effort to give new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin more options and possibly get Lawson on the field more, he is working at strong side linebacker in base packages this summer. If the experiment goes well Lawson could earn a starting job and possibly provide fantasy value. We should not expect big tackle totals but double digit sacks are a real possibility. (May 26)
