Dolphins Expected To Sign DE Shaq Lawson For Three Years, $30M


Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins are expected to sign Bills DE Shaq Lawson to a three-year, $30 million deal.

According to Jeremy Fowler, the Dolphins had a strong interest in Lawson as a target on the first day of free agency. 

Lawson capitalized on Buffalo declining his fifth-year option last offseason by posting a career-high in sacks. He’s set to potentially take advantage of a depleted edge rusher market

Lawson, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2016. He just finished the final year of his four-year, $10.27 million contract that included $9.82 million guaranteed and made a base salary of $1.85 million in the final year of the agreement.

He’s entering unrestricted free agency for the first time in his career this offseason. 

In 2019, Lawson appeared in 15 games for the Bills and recorded 32 tackles, 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated Lawson as the No. 52 edge defender out of 107 qualifying players.
