According to Phil Richards of the Indy Star, free agent linebacker Manny Lawson is drawing some interest from the Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts.
Lawson played for the Cincinnati Bengals this past season and recorded 52 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Before heading to Cincy he played with the 49ers for five seasons.
