Vincent Bonsignore reports that Lawson was suspended for violating the league’s Performance Enhancing Substances policy.
Lawson, 29, is a former fourth-round pick by the Lions out of Utah State back in 2014. He finished his four-year, $3,449,349 rookie contract before agreeing to a two-year, $10.3 million contract with the Lions in 2018.
The Lions later released Lawson and he later signed a one-year contract worth $3.05 million with the Raiders. Lawson also served a four-game suspension for a PED violation to open the 2019 season.
The Raiders signed Lawson to a one-year extension worth $3.29 million last year and re-signed him to another one-year deal last month.
In 2020, Lawson appeared in 14 games for the Raiders and recorded 60 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, a recovery and four passes defended.
