Las Vegas Raiders cornerback Nevin Lawson has been suspended for the first two games of next season for violating the league’s performance-boosting drug policy, various media reports.
Lawson, who signed a $ 1.9 million one-year contract with the Raiders last month, will miss the season opener for the third straight year.
Lawson, 29, received a four-match suspension for violating league policy on performance-enhancing substances before the 2019 season’s opening. He also received a one-match ban for using his helmet as a weapon in the 2019 season final against the Denver Broncos, causing him to miss the first game of the 2020 campaign.
Lawson amassed a career-high 61 tackles to follow with four pass deflections, two forced strokes and one dismissal in 14 games (nine starts) last season. He had 290 tackles, 34 pass deflections, three forced strokes and two failed recoveries in 88 games (68 starts) with the Detroit Lions and the Raiders.
Lawson had four interceptions as a college senior at Utah State in 2013 before becoming a fourth-round pick by the Lions in 2014.
