Jaguars' Nevin Lawson: Heading to Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson signed a contract with the Jaguars on Wednesday.

Lawson was cut by the Raiders at the start of the week and didn't take long to latch on with a new team. The 30-year-old was suspended for the first two games of the season for violating the NFL's PED policy, but he should make his season debut for the Jaguars against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Nevin Lawson: Let go by Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson was released by the Raiders on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lawson was suspended for the first two games of the year for violating the NFL policy for performance-enhancing substances, but he'll be let go now that his suspension is over. Nate Hobbs has started in his place during the first two games of the season and will likely maintain a starting role. However, the Raiders are hopeful that they'll be able to sign Lawson to their practice squad.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Handed suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson has been suspended for the first two games of the 2021 season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Per Tashan Reed of The Athletic, Lawson has been suspended for violating the NFL policy for performance enhancing substances. The cornerback had just re-signed with the Raiders after reaching career highs in tackles (61) and forced fumbles (two) during the 2020 campaign.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Returns to Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Raiders, Anthony Galaviz of the Fresno Bee reports.

Lawson played a prominent role in the secondary in his first season with Las Vegas in 2020, racking up 735 snaps. He managed four passes defended with 61 tackles and will now return to the team for a second campaign.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (illness) wasn't listed on Tuesday's injury report, Josh Dubow of the Associated Press reports.

Lawson missed last week's loss to the Chargers due to an illness, but he's been cleared for a Week 16 matchup against the Dolphins. The veteran cornerback should return to a starting role immediately. Through 12 games, Lawson has given up 374 yards and five touchdowns in coverage.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Will be unavailable for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (illness) is inactive for Thursday's matchup game the Chargers.

After earning his eighth start of the 2020 campaign Week 14 against the Colts, Lawson popped up on the injury report Wednesday with a reported illness. It's since been confirmed that the issue is serious enough to hand Lawson his second absence of the season, thrusting Isaiah Johnson into a more integral role at cornerback. With Damon Arnette and Johnathan Abram both inactive due to concussions, plus Jeff Heath (concussion) residing on IR, the Raiders' secondary is hurting heading into Thursday night's matchup.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Questionable for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game versus the Chargers, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Lawson missed Wednesday's practice after falling ill. He hasn't tested positive for COVID-19, but his status for Thursday's game remains in question. With cornerback Damon Arnette (concussion/neck) and safety Johnathan Abram (concussion/knee) ruled out already, the Raiders' secondary could be in tough shape if Lawson sits out, too. Amik Robertson, Isaiah Johnson and Daryl Worley are candidates to start in Lawson's place if he's inactive.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Suspension served
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson had his suspension lifted following Sunday's win over the Panthers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Lawson was handed a one-game suspension for "using a helmet that is no longer worn by anyone as a weapon to strike, swing at, or throw at an opponent" during last year's season finale against Denver. Now that he sat out of Sunday's season opener, he's eligible to return for Week 2's matchup versus the Saints, but he may stick to special teams to start off.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Inks one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (suspension) signed a one-year contract extension with the Raiders on Thursday.

Lawson appeared in 11 games (five starts) with the Raiders in 2019, during which he accrued 24 tackles and five defended passes. An altercation during Oakland's season-finale loss to the Broncos resulted in Lawson receiving a one-game suspension, the duration of which he figures to serve Week 1 of the 2020 regular season.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Suspended one game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson has been suspended after an altercation in Sunday's season finale against the Broncos. According to NFL VP of Operations Jon Runyan, Lawson was suspended for "using helmet that is no longer worn by anyone as a weapon to strike, swing at, or throw at an opponent" and will serve a one-game absence, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Lawson was also suspended for four games earlier this season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. With the 2019 season over for the Raiders, Lawson figures to serve his suspension during Week 1 of the 2020 regular season. He played in 11 games this year for Oakland, turning in 24 tackles and five passes defensed.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Eight tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson posted eight tackles (four solo), including one tackle for loss, during Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars.

Lawson drew the spot start at cornerback in Week 15 with Daryl Worley sidelined by a neck injury, and the former took advantage of the opportunity by doubling his previous season high in tackles. Lawson also logged 56 of a possible 57 defensive snaps, and he should see a hefty workload again in Week 16 if Worley remains out.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Rejoins roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson rejoined the Raiders' 53-man roster Monday.

To make room for Lawson on the 53-man squad, the Raiders waived Lester Cotton. The 28-year-old cornerback will have the benefit of Oakland's bye week to get up to speed, and he projects to make his 2019 debut Week 7 versus Green Bay.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Done serving suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson has completed his four-game suspension and is eligible to return for the Raiders in Week 5, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

The Raiders received a roster exemption for Lawson and will have until Oct. 7 to activate him. Lawson projects to play a key role in Oakland's secondary, though after spending the first four weeks of the season away from the team, it remains to be seen whether he'll be up to speed for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Officially suspended
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson officially received a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy Monday, Nick Underhill of The Athletic reports.

Lawson announced the suspension on his official Twitter account last week. With the depth cornerback sidelined to begin the season, Isaiah Johnson (concussion) stands to see increased opportunities for playing time assuming he gets healthy.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Hit with suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, per his official Twitter account.

Lawson only projects to provide depth in Oakland's secondary, so his absence for the first four games of the season isn't likely to derail the team's defense. It does not currently appear that the 28-year-old veteran plans to appeal his suspension. Isaiah Johnson could benefit from increased opportunity while Lawson remains sidelined.

Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Joining Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson agreed Wednesday with the Raiders on a one-year, $3.05 million deal, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Lawson was released by the Lions earlier in March after starting 14 games in 2018 and 45 of 46 games over the past three seasons. The 27-year-old will likely slot in behind Gareon Conley and Daryl Worley (shoulder) at cornerback and could have a sizable role in the Oakland secondary.

Nevin Lawson: Will visit Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson will meet with the Raiders on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Lions let Lawson go last week in order to avoid giving him a roster bonus. He spent his first five seasons in Detroit. The 27-year-old appeared in 15 games last season, starting 14 of them, and recorded 43 tackles (33 solo), one sack and five passes defended. Oakland's secondary is relatively thin, so he could carve out a role for himself there should he ultimately sign.

Nevin Lawson: Cut loose by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions released Lawson on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lawson was due a $1.2 million roster bonus next week and close to $5 million in salary during the 2019 season. He had 53 tackles and five pass breakups in 15 games for the Lions last season. The Lions freed up cap space, but after Darius Slay there aren't any established starting cornerbacks under contract with the team.

Lions' Nevin Lawson: Will sit season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (ankle) was downgraded from questionable to out for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Lawson was added to the injury report Friday and will miss his first game of the season. Jamal Agnew (knee) was also ruled out while DeShawn Shead (knee) is now on injured reserve, likely leaving Teez Tabor, Michael Cooper and Mike Ford to see increased defensive workloads in the season finale.

Lions' Nevin Lawson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Lawson has not missed a game yet this season, and will attempt to play through his ankle injury versus the Packers. If the starting cornerback were to sit out the season finale, Teez Tabor would benefit from an uptick in snaps.
