Biography

A fourth-round Bengals draft choice in 2017, Lawson as a rookie proved to be one of Cincinnati’s promising young players ... Was used primarily as a pass-rush specialist in ’17, playing nearly 42 percent of Bengals’ defensive snaps, and he is expected to have an expanded role in ’18 ... Led all NFL rookies in sacks with 8.5, which also tied for second-most ever by a Bengals rookie (DE Carlos Dunlap had 9.5 in 2010; DE Justin Smith had 8.5 in ’01) ... His 2.5 sacks of Aaron Rodgers on Sept. 24 at Green Bay made him only the second Bengal rookie ever to reach the 2.5-sack mark in a game (Smith had three in ’01) ... Named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie team.
