The Raiders have made a few key additions this offseason, including bringing in safety Lamarcus Joyner, but have not bolstered their cornerback situation — one that fluctuated in 2018. Lawson would be a step in that direction.
Lawson spent five seasons in Detroit, the former fourth-round pick starting 54 games. The 27-year-old defender was the Lions’ primary Darius Slay complementary starter from 2016-18. Despite his place on the Lions’ depth chart and Slay being entrenched as Detroit’s No. 1 corner, Lawson has yet to record an interception. He stayed with the Lions last year via a two-year, $9.2MM deal.
