Report: Jets Acquire Shaq Lawson From Texans for Sixth-Round Pick

The Texans have reportedly traded linebacker Shaq Lawson to the Jets for a future sixth-round pick, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport

Lawson will leave without playing a single regular-season snap for Houston after joining the Texans in March in a trade that sent linebacker Benardrick McKinney and a seventh-round pick to the Dolphins. 

The former Clemson All-American was a Bills first-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft before he joined the Dolphins in 2020 on a three-year deal worth $30 million. Lawson recorded 32 combined tackles and four sacks last season for Miami.
