A few days after the Buffalo Bills announced they had re-signed defensive tackle Jordan Phillips on a one-year deal, today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off with the news that another of Phillips’ defensive linemates—defensive end Shaq Lawson—is also returning on a one-year contract.

Bills bringing back DE Shaq Lawson

Lawson is returning to the Bills for a second consecutive season, a logical move for both sides after Lawson expressed a strong desire to re-sign with Buffalo earlier in the offseason. The former first-round pick was solid with Buffalo last year, making 31 tackles with 3.5 sacks in 15 games (with six starts). Lawson was a valuable member of the defensive line, especially once edge rusher Von Miller suffered a season-ending injury.
