Carl Lawson eyes week 1 return, takes shot at Aaron Rodgers

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

It seems that Carl Lawson is feeling as better than ever right before training camp. He can’t wait to return to football and he hopes to do that as soon as possible.

“The goal is to be out there Week 1, and I’m feeling great,”

Lawson recently when on NFL network’s, Good Morning Football and talked the rehab process, Zac Taylor, and even Aaron Rodgers.

“Thankfully I can take care of my body, I’ve got a lot of different resources, I can fly to places, I can do everything underneath the sun because I have the money to do it. So, it’s been a great rehab process.”

If Lawson can be out there week 1 at Seattle, it’ll be a tremendous boost to a Cincinnati defense that badly needs the game changer.

In just seven games in 2018 Lawson had a top-10 pass-rushing grade for edge rushers from Pro Football Focus.

Lawson pointed out that the best thing about his new head coach Zac Taylor is that he immediately started setting up a culture, and the players have responded very well to the change.

When players buy in and believe in the system, it only makes them work harder and want to succeed even more. We should be keeping an eye on the Bengals, do not count them out.

Finally, Lawson says that star quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers is the ‘easiest’ Quarterback to sack.

“Honestly, I think it’s easier to sack Aaron Rodgers than most quarterbacks,” Lawson said on NFL Network. “He sits there, and he pats the ball. At the same time, sacking him don’t mean nothing if you don’t do it for four quarters. You know, he came back against us. So, I mean, he’s an easier quarterback for me to sack personally, because he sits there, and he probably gets eight to 10 yards in the pocket.”

Lawson was able to rack up 2.5 sacks against Rodgers in 2017 out of the teams six for the game, easily making it one of his best and most memorable moments of his young career.

Carl Lawson is clearly amped about his return and about the Bengals in 2019, and you should be as well.
