    Jets' Shaq Lawson: Traded again

    The New York Jets will trade a 2022 sixth-round pick to the Texans in exchange for Shaq Lawson, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.The Jets were looking for pass-rushing help after losing free-agent acquisition Carl Lawson to a season-ending Achilles' injury. This marks the second time that Shaq Lawson has been traded since last season, following a deal in March, which sent him from Miami to Houston. The 27-year-old, who was a first-round draft pick of the Bills in 2016, logged 33 tackles and four sacks with the Dolphins in 2020 and will now set his sights on landing a starting DE slot with the Jets opposite John Franklin-Myers.

    Texans' Shaq Lawson: Traded to Houston

    The Dolphins are trading Shaq Lawson to the Houston Texans in exchange for Benardrick McKinney (shoulder) and a swap of late-round picks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com, Miami will swap their 2021 sixth-round pick in exchange for Houston's 2021 seventh-round pick as part of the deal. Lawson and McKinney are set for a similar cap hit for next season, with both linebackers carrying salaries in the $8 million range, making that aspect of the deal essentially a wash. In essence, the Texans will hope for a player capable of filling part of the void left by J.J. Watt's departure in the form of Lawson, while the Dolphins will look for McKinney to bolster their lackluster run defense. New defensive coordinator Lovie Smith's scheme could allow Lawson to line up at both outside linebacker and defensive end, depending on the situation.
