Though Lawson played well enough in Cincinnati's 4-3 base defense (and truly it was only 4-3 situations because Lawson was mostly taken out of the game during five-defensive back situations), there's questions if he could go back to a 3-4 defense, which is what the Colts are shifting towards this year with new head coach Chuck Pagano and a base defense that didn't really help Lawson thrive in San Francisco.
