Dexter Williams Jersey
BUFFALO Jonah Williams Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — A person with direct knowledge of the decision confirms to The Associated Press the Buffalo Bills have informed defensive end Shaq Lawson that they will not pick up the fifth-year option of his contract.The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Wednesday because the team has not announced the news, which was first reported by The NFL Network.Teams had until the end of this week to determine whether to pick up the fifth-year options of players selected in the first round of the 2016 draft.Lawson was drafted with the 19th pick out of Clemson, and the Bills’ decision means his contract will expire after this upcoming season.Injuries led to Lawson making an inconsistent impact during his first three seasons. He missed the first six games of his rookie year after having surgery for a shoulder injury. He was limited to playing 11 games in 2017 after sustaining a season-ending ankle injury.Lawson showed signs of promise last season in which he had four sacks and a career-best 12 hits on the quarterback in 14 games.Overall, he has 10 sacks and 20 hits on the quarterback in 35 games. RENTON Elgton Jenkins Jersey , Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks are addressing one of their biggest offseason needs as veteran defensive end Ezekiel Ansah has agreed to a one-year deal with the team, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday night on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced by the team. NFL Network first reported the agreement.Ansah will join the Seahawks after six seasons with Detroit and may not be the final move made by Seattle in an attempt to bolster its pass rush with sacks leader Frank Clark traded to Kansas City before the draft last month.Two years ago, Ansah had 12 sacks and in 2015 had 14 ½ when he was voted to the Pro Bowl for the only time in his career. But his health will be a major concern with Ansah’s arrival in Seattle after he played in just seven games last season for Detroit due to shoulder problems that lingered the entire season.Seattle waited until after Tuesday’s deadline when free agent signings would count against compensatory picks in next year’s draft before reaching an agreement with Ansah. Seattle coach Pete Carroll made it clear during the NFL draft there were additional moves to come to help the pass rush.“There is work that we’re engaged in (during) this stage of filling up the roster and we’re very involved in what is coming up next,” Carroll said on April 27. “We’re not done , we have work to do. We’re excited about what’s coming up and you guys will see in time.”Ansah played last season on the franchise tag with the Lions and earned $17.1 million for a season that ended on injured reserve.Seattle’s decision to trade Clark before the draft ended up landing the Seahawks a bounty of needed picks in the draft and freed up more than $17 million in salary cap space, but also saw 13 sacks leave town from the one proven edge pass rusher on their roster. Jarran Reed had 10 ½ sacks from his defensive tackle position last season, but no other Seattle defensive lineman had more than three sacks.If he is healthy, Ansah will be an immediate boost. Seattle drafted L.J. Collier in the first round to play defensive end Dexter Williams Jersey , but he was the only one of Seattle’s 11 draft picks used to address the pass rush. With the addition of Ansah and Collier, the Seahawks pass rush options now include Quinton Jefferson, Brandon Jackson and Jacob Martin.
