Former Bills LB Manny Lawson Suspended Two Games

Adam Schefter reports that the NFL has suspended former Bills LB Manny Lawson two games.

This stems from an incident that occurred back in February of 2014 in Scottsdale, Arizona when Lawson was arrested for a disorderly conduct/domestic violence incident.

However, the charges were dismissed in November of 2014 and Lawson entered a plea deal and entered into a diversion program.

Lawson, 32, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2006. He spent five years in San Francisco before signing on with the Bengals in 2011.

Lawson later joined the Bills in 2013 and has spent the past three years in Buffalo. He was currently in the final year of his four-year, $12 million contract that included $4.6 million and set to make a base salary of $2.35 million for the 2016 season when the Bills cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2015, Lawson appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and recorded 47 tackles, one sack, an interception and five pass defenses.
