Dee Ford Is This Year’s Demarcus Lawrence

Dee Ford is following in Dallas Cowboys defensive end Demarcus Lawrence’s footsteps. The Kansas City Chiefs’ outside linebacker has Lawrence’s impeccable timing.

Ford is an edge rusher having a breakout season with an expiring contract following an injury plagued year.

Lawrence’s 6.5 sacks in the first three games of the 2017 season resulted in him being named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for September. Limited to nine games in 2016 because of a four-game suspension under the NFL’s substance abuse policy and a back injury that required surgery, the 2014 second round pick (34th overall) had one sack in 2016. It was the second straight offseason where Lawrence had back surgery.
