He did all that while missing one game. He was named a West Division all-star and has a good chance of making the CFL all-star team as well.
Lawler said he wanted to be the best receiver in the league when training camp started and by the end of it, he was right there.
The drunk driving arrest remains front and centre, however, an incident he regrets but believes may have opened his eyes.
“I’m thankful for it because I believe going through those things made me a better, stronger person, a father, everything,” the 27-year-old from California said.
“Sometimes I feel like I wouldn’t be here without the lessons that I’ve learned. In a weird way, I’m grateful.
“Throughout the course of the season it’s just been nothing but love. Especially when the incident happened, to be able to feel all the love from my teammates, to have them surround me, just be there for me … my family, even people I haven’t talked to in a long time, reached out to me.
