The Buffalo Bills signed outside linebacker Manny Lawson, who reunites with college teammate Mario Williams.

Lawson played the past two seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals after entering the NFL as a first-round (22nd overall) draft selection of the San Francisco 49ers in 2006.

Lawson, 28, made $2.1 million in 2012 and started 10 games at strong-side linebacker.

"The last 24 hours have been a blast," Lawson said via the Bills' website. "Just talking to the guys and getting a feel for the organization. I'm happy to be here and I expect a lot of things. I think we're going to have a lot of fun. I think we're going to put a show on for the fans out here in Buffalo. I'm just ready to kick the season off."

The 6-5, 240-pound linebacker has 18 career sacks, 19 pass breakups, two interceptions, seven forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.
