Shaq Lawson

Shaq Lawson was a first-round pick by the Bills in 2016 and was expected to be a big part of Rex Ryan's defense. However, Ryan wouldn't last Lawson's entire rookie season and played three seasons for Sean McDermott.

He would have his best season during the final year of his rookie contract and would get a big contract in free agency from the Miami Dolphins. He would play only one season with the Dolphins and then the New York Jets before returning to Buffalo.

Lawson has played the past two seasons with the Bills and has been a key part of the rotation and even stepping in as the starter when needed. However, the Bills have added a lot to the defensive end position this offseason and there doesn't appear to be a roster spot for Lawson this upcoming year.

At this point of his career, Lawson has shown to be a valuable backup that can contribute when on the field. The team that makes the most sense at this point would be the Chicago Bears as he could reunite with his former defensive line coach Eric Washington, who is now the defensive coordinator for the Bears.
