2019 Free Agent Profile: Demarcus Lawrence


The man they call 'Tank' is coming off just about as good of a two-season contract run as a player can have.

After three seasons marred by injuries, suspensions, and inconsistency, Lawrence broke out as a Defensive Player of the Year candidate with 14 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, and 26 quarterback hits in 2017, earning himself the franchise tag for the 2018 campaign.

After signing the tag and stating that he'd use the following season to prove himself worthy of a long-term deal, Lawrence was one of the most disruptive player on the Cowboys defense, recording 15 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, and 23 quarterback hits in 2018.
