Shaq Lawson

Shaq Lawson would also be a good target to look for in a trade. Heck, he may even get cut from the Buffalo Bills. It hasn’t exactly worked out for him in Buffalo and a change of scenery to the  Bears could do wonders for him.

A defensive coordinator like Fangio could help Lawson blossom. Fangio’s area of expertise is with linebackers, so there’s a chance it could work.

Lawson is 6’3″ and 267 pounds, so he could complement the lanky Floyd very well. Lawson has six sacks combined in two seasons with the Bills, since being drafted in the first round. He had an immense level of talent that he showed in college with the Clemson Tigers.

Our own Ryan Heckman believes that Lawson could be had for a 6th or 7th round draft pick. For that price, the reward definitely outweighs the risk. Lawson appears to be fully recovered from the ankle injury that forced him on injury reserve last season. So, he’d fit right in on the Bears. All joking aside, anyone available at this point is going to have concerns. That’s why they’re available.

So if Pace trades for Lawson, you’re hoping he stays healthy and that Fangio is able to maximize his capabilities. The talent is there and the mastermind Fangio can unlock it. That makes Lawson a top target for the Bears.
