Lawrence played in every game in 2014 and had 11 tackles and a sack in limited defensive action, according to the coaches' breakdown. He finished tied for ninth with four special teams tackles. Lawrence signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2013 and was called up from the practice squad midway through his rookie season.
The Cowboys also signed defensive tackle Davon Coleman. He was the last of the Cowboys’ practice-squad players from the end of last season to sign a deal after he looked elsewhere for work following the season.
Coleman, who signed as an undrafted free agent with the Cowboys last year, started the season opener, was active for the first two games and made four tackles before getting hurt in the weight room. He was inactive for the next eight games before he was released and brought back to the practice squad.
