Lawson's starting right cornerback job seems secure, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Lawson quietly put together a solid 2016 campaign that seemingly went underappreciated due to his lack of big plays. However, the four-year vet served as the Lions' top cover corner when Darius Slay wasn't able to play and finished the year among the league leaders in fewest yards allowed per coverage snap (0.82). It's possible 2017 second-rounder Teez Tabor could push for a starting gig before long, but, for now, the job appears to be Lawson's to lose.
