The Miami Dolphins are signing former Buffalo Bills edge rusher Shaq Lawson to a three-year, $30-million contract, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Lawson can earn up to $36 million on his new deal, Rapoport added.

In 2019, the final season of his rookie contract, the Clemson product racked up a career-best 6.5 sacks and 18 quarterback hits while serving as a rotational pass-rusher on a Buffalo defense that ranked second in terms of points allowed.

Miami ranked last in the NFL in most pass-rushing categories last season, including sacks, pressures, and pressure rate, according to Football Reference.

Lawson, 25, was selected 19th overall by the Bills in the 2016 draft.
