Shaq Lawson signs with the Buffalo Bills

Former Clemson standout Shaq Lawson signed a four-year contract worth $10.3 million dollars with the Buffalo Bills on Monday according to team officials.

"It felt great to finally get the deal done and be part of the Buffalo Bills," Lawson told "I’ve been waiting for this opportunity. It’s something I dreamt of as a kid and have a chance to play in the National Football League."

Lawson finished his final season at Clemson with 86 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss (first in the nation), 12.5 sacks and 15 quarterback hurries. For his career, he had 167 tackles, 46.5 tackles for loss, 20 sacks, 29 quarterback pressures and two fumble recoveries.

This leaves only fourth-rounder Cardale Jones as unsigned by the Bills from the 2016 draft class.
