Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Manny Lawson has officially re-signed with the Bengals.
“We’re glad to have him back and keep going along,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “Manny is still a young guy and we’ll continue to grow and manage him. The offseason program will be tremendous and help him.”
We have Lawson listed as the #4 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
Last night there were reports that he was on the verge of signing a contract with the team, but we’re still waiting to hear something official regarding this situation.
Lawson has drawn some interest of late from teams like the Colts, Browns, Packers and Raiders. Overall, Lawson is a decent player but the one knock on him is his inability to get to the quarterback. Last year he had only two sacks and three quarterback pressures which is definitely a concerning factor, but he’s very solid against the run.
