Bills | DC believes Manny Lawson is good pass rusher

Thu, 14 Mar 2013 11:16:29 -0700

Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said he believes LB Manny Lawson is an underrated pass rusher because he did not rush the passer much with the Cincinnati Bengals. "I think he brings a guy that has some explosive ability. He's a tall, rangy guy, a set the edge type defender," said Pettine. "And even though we're not going to be true 3-4 or 4-3 as far as we're doing it. In our multiple fronts that we run we do need some bigger edge players. So I do think he certainly fits that bill for us. I think he's an underrated pass rusher."
