Report: Bills fine DE Shaq Lawson for Philly fan interaction

The Buffalo Bills are fining defensive end Shaq Lawson an undisclosed amount for his interaction with a fan in Philadelphia last month, NFL Network reported Friday.

Lawson issued an apology following the incident that occurred during the Bills’ 37-34 loss to the Eagles in overtime on Nov. 26.

A video circulated on social media of Lawson approaching a spectator behind the Buffalo bench, exchanging words and then shoving the fan.

Lawson said the fan began heckling players before the game started and was allowed to remain in his seat even after Bills officials asked security to remove him.

“Eventually our emotions boiled over and I made a mistake,” Lawson wrote the next day on Instagram. “For that, I apologize, but there are certain lines that should not be crossed.

“I love the crowd. I love rowdy fans. It makes the game fun. But one thing I’m not going to tolerate is someone threatening me or my family. This is a line that shouldn’t be crossed.”

Lawson, 29, has recorded one sack and 10 tackles in 11 games this season. He has 26 sacks in 104 games (37 starts) with the Bills (2016-19, 2022-present), Miami Dolphins (2020) and New York Jets (2021).

Bills bring back Shaq Lawson on 1-year deal

Shaq Lawson signed a one-year contract to return to the Buffalo Bills, NFL.com reported Monday.

Lawson had 3.5 sacks and 31 tackles in 15 games with the Bills in 2022, including six starts, establishing a larger role following the season-ending injury to Von Miller. Lawson also started both playoff games with the Bills in January.

A first-round pick out of Clemson in 2016, Lawson played for the Bills until 2019 before stops with the Dolphins and Jets from 2020-2021.

He has 25 career sacks and 194 total tackles.

Jets activate OT Mekhi Becton, DE Carl Lawson, TE C.J. Uzomah

The New York Jets activated tackle Mekhi Becton, defensive end Carl Lawson and tight end C.J. Uzomah from the physically unable to perform list on Tuesday as they opened camp in Florham Park, N.J.

The trio had been placed on the PUP list last week, but Tuesday’s move signals they are ready to go at the start of camp.

Becton sustained a dislocated right kneecap and MCL sprain in Week 1 of the 2021 season. He struggled to recover and it ultimately ended his season.

The 11th pick of the 2021 draft reportedly ballooned to nearly 400 pounds while injured. But the Jets listed him at 363 pounds in a news release Tuesday and NFL Network reported that the team was pleased with his fitness when he reported to camp.

Becton, 23, was the Jets’ starting left tackle before his injury and could return to the role this season.

Lawson, 27, signed a three-year, $45 million deal with the Jets before the 2021 season but has yet to play a snap for them after sustaining a torn Achilles tendon during joint practices with the Green Bay Packers in August 2021.

Before that setback, Lawson tallied 20 sacks in his first four NFL seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals (2017-20).

Uzomah, 29, went to the Super Bowl with the Bengals last season but was playing hurt after he sustained an MCL sprain during the AFC Championship Game. Uzomah signed a three-year, $24 million deal with the Jets in free agency.

Offensive tackle George Fant (knee) remains on the PUP list, and running back Tevin Coleman was placed on the active/non-football injury list.

The Jets also signed quarterback Chris Streveler, wide receiver/returner Rashard Davis and offensive lineman Isaiah Williams. They also released receiver DJ Montgomery, cornerback Craig James and offensive lineman Dru Samia on Tuesday.

Reports: Raiders CB Nevin Lawson returning on one-year deal

The Las Vegas Raiders are re-signing cornerback Nevin Lawson, according to multiple reports on Saturday.

The deal is for one season, per reports.

Lawson started 14 of 25 games played for the Raiders over the past two seasons. He recorded a career-high 61 tackles last season.

Lawson, 29, spent his first five seasons for the Detroit Lions and started 54 of 63 games played. He returned a fumble for touchdown during the 2017 season.

Despite playing in 88 career games, Lawson doesn’t have an interception.

Lawson had four interceptions as a college senior at Utah State in 2013 before being a fourth-round pick by the Lions in 2014.
