NFL Free Agency 2012: Browns Not Interested In Manny Lawson, According To Report

Reports surfaced late Tuesday night that the Cleveland Browns were interested in signing free agent outside linebacker Manny Lawson. That report from Scout.com was refuted later by Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, who had a source saying the Browns were, in fact, not interested in Lawson.

Via Cleveland.com:

The Browns are not interested in former Bengals linebacker Manny Lawson, a league source said today.
Scout.com reported Tuesday that the Browns were one of a handful of teams pursuing the former Bengals linebacker. The reports said the Raiders and Colts were also interested, and the Packers were in talks to acquire him, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday.

The Browns have already signed two pass rushers this season in Frostee Rucker and Juqua Parker. Lawson played alongside Rucker last year with the Bengals, where he registered 1.5 sacks in 15 games.
