Lawson improved down the stretch to become a starter for the Raiders in 2019.
However, he will serve a one-game suspension to open the 2020 season for using his helmet as a weapon in the season finale.
Lawson, 28 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.
In 2019, Lawson appeared in 11 games for the Raiders and recorded 24 tackles, no interceptions and five passes defended.
