After signing Frostee Rucker and Juqua Parker the Browns might not be finished with its defense in free agency just yet. Scout.com attributes to league sources that the Browns, Colts and Raiders are all interested in the 27-year-old former 49er and Bengal, linebacker Manny Lawson.
Lawson is a former first rounder out of NC State. He is 6’5″ and listed at 240 pounds. Tell me if this sounds familiar. He was drafted by the 49ers as they transitioned from the 4-3 defense to the 3-4 after playing his college career as a defensive end. Unlike Browns experiments with guys like David Veikune, Lawson was able to make the transition pretty well.
We’ll see if anything develops between the Browns and Manny Lawson. He signed with the Bengals last season for 1 year and $3 million. Who knows if the Browns are looking to add some depth, or if they might have concerns about Scott Fujita’s potential discipline from the league due to the Saints’ bounty program.
