The NFL has announced that Raiders cornerback Nevin Lawson will be suspended two games for violating the league policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Ironically, this will be his third consecutive season missing the opening game of the NFL season. Certainly not a good look.

Lawson joined the Raiders in 2019 after spending five years in Detroit. This will be his third year with the team, having appeared in 25 games while making 14 starts. During his tenure with the Raiders, he’s racked up 85 tackles with nine pass breakups.

With the release of Lamarcus Joyner, Lawson was expected to compete this offseason for the starting cornerback job. He will still be able to work out and practice with the club through all off-season activities as well as training camp but will be placed on suspension going into the opener.
