Joe Douglas wasted no time filling another Jets need.
After landing receiver Corey Davis, the Jets general manager agreed to a three-year, $45 million contract with former Bengals defensive end Carl Lawson on Monday, according to NFL Network.
That includes $30 million in guaranteed money.
The 25-year-old Lawson had 5.5 sacks in 2020 and five in 2019. He is the second big defensive addition for the Jets, who also added linebacker Jarrad Davis, a former first-round pick by the Lions, in free agency.
